Poems by Ronald Kimber, selected from his collection "Eccentric city." Poems written in the 1980s about Kimber's childhood in the Shore Drive Community in downtown Greenville, N.C.

The subjects of his poems include his family, the pastimes of city kids, Rhythm and Blues music, home cooking and restaurants, and the corner store. The African American neighborhood in this area was removed and the area redeveloped in the 1960s to create a town common area. Loaned for scanning by Ronald Kimber.
