I am drawn to poetry that is abstract. Images and pre-conscious experiences pulled out into poetry are not easily translated into words, or immediately accessible, and since when does poetry have to be universally engaging?

I have a fetish for small poems done exceedingly well.

Andrew has fed my paraphilia (several times) with this book.

Can read free on-line-one poem per page-short and bittersweet. That last is the best for me-the last line lingered for me.
