I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads first-reads program, and would like to thank Scott Woods, Goodreads, Brick Cave Media and any others involved in providing me with this book.

Some great moments in this volume, including a clever sequence of "The Bible in 50 Haiku." The following samples give you a taste:

I won a copy of this book from Goodreads, and I wanted to thank the publisher Brick Cave books, and the Author Scott Woods.
It has been a long time since I read a book of poetry, and while I did not really relate to most of the subjects in the book, a couple of the poems did give me cause to ponder.
Thanks for the opportunity to read We Over Here Now, and I wish the author continued success.

Very different style of poetry. This was a goodreads give away. I am thrilled to have received this book of poetry. Their are some very humorous poems like the Sunoco Station and Old friends for sale. If you like various styles of poems you may like this book.
