Just taught this book with my advanced poetry students...I hadn't read it in years and forgot just how much backbeat the poems had, how much humor and how much heart.

"When the world ends, I will be wearing a red dress." Enough said. Poems to make you want to dance. That's some deep synesthesic alchemy.

I appreciate how the title gets your attention and the poems in the book truly relate to the title.
