Recommends it for: Sparrows and mix-tape day dreamers.
Recommended to Leslie by: Some scamp.

These poems emote with youthful fists up in punkrock triumph over ho-hum cubicle woes, while showing a sparrow's sensitivity to the world around and inside it, set to the most glorious mix-tape you have ever made for a doomed love affair, the one with the cover and liner notes you spent hours perfecting.

Best served with red wine and banjitars in a cemetary at midnight, after having read a paperback by Jenna Black.

Recommends it for: all heroes
I can't express how awesome this book is. It's like the the Super Bowl of all Books. No, no, it's like the Dallas Cowboys of all Books. Maybe even the Ghengis Khan or Louis the XIV of all Books, it's that good. Ever been touched by an angel? Try being touched by NICK COURAGE RICHARDSON. Truly trenscendent verse, in the most viciously kickass way.

Perfectly evocative of bohemian flats and harsh lights and amplified sound systems, all screaming "live, live!" Also, very clever synecdochal poetic forms.
