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.

These eight abrupt poems break apart our habitual expectations and never let us drift... they take us where "gifts bosom/of opened theme amid mind" and "every tree is its own apocalypse".

Scantilyclad is not loading for me right now, so I'll have to come back to this another time.

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.
