I take this book with me every time I go to the ocean so that I can read "Everything Is Going to Be All Right." And, each time, I explore deeper and further into his poetry.

Shelves: unfinished
Unfinished because not available in U.S. (as of 2009) -- some pages missing from my questionably obtained copy.
