These two old guys drove twelve miles into the city to attend a special poetry reading, hoping to eventually read publicly a few of their own poems in the ordered process of each signing into the listed queue holding court on the official table of the local coffee house.

Even hard poetry should not be hard. It should be fun, but still hard, in that you do not know what it means but you still know, and you want to keep reading. This is poetry. You want it, and it wants you, too. It is a web of wants that gives. But the gift is not a given. As a dance is a dance that is not a series of steps.

This is pure poetry. These poems must be read. They do not clamor for your eyes; they do not give a damn about your sweating life.

I was given an advanced reading copy and absolutely loved this!
The verses and poetry spoke to me and it was just amazing. My friend took the book from me and read it all then gave it back and went out to buy her own. I recommend this book to anyone who loves poetry!
