This evocative collection sets poems side by side with prose poems that help enlarge the frame of reference for the author’s subjects.
The collection follows a young poet through his daily life, and the poem’s subtitle of a Twenty-Twenty Vision is an apt description of the two sides of story we see — both the creative, poetic side and the prose poetry fact side.
“Alive with wisecracks, broad jokes, puns, (‘making his bed out of procrustination’) as it moves through rhetorical high and low styles to portray mood swings between ‘negative optimism’ and cheerful melancholic openness to life. — Michael Sharkey
