fuck i wish i had been reading this before.
William Matthew's Time and Money delights at times, but not continuously - some of the poems just seem too self-conscious. But that is too critical for a book I enjoyed a good deal.

"To teach what you know - laughter, ignorance,
curiosity, and the erotic thrall
of work as a restraint against despair -
comes as close to freedom as anyone pays
wages for." from "Note Left ..."
One of my favorite books of poetry. The poem about Folsom Prison and Johnny Cash is amazing, as are a couple dozen other poems in the book!
billy collins gets all the attention in the earthy, funny poet category. that's fine. but william matthews is right there in my book.
Great book, especially poems about Mingus
