This is a collection I return to again and again. Stan Rice was a brilliant poet. This volume collects work from his out-of-print chapbooks and previous collections. He had a recognizable voice in poetry and his work was often an extension of his painting. "Thunder & Rain" is one of the most amazing poems ever written (and I mean that seriously).

“The Murder Burger is served right here.
You need not wait at the gate of Heaven for unleavened death.
You can be a goner on this very corner.
Mayonnaise, onions, dominance of flesh.
If you wish to eat it you must feed it.

Yall come back soon."
-- You bet.”
