Oh Mr Goldbarth, where have you been all my life?

Been a long time since I fell into a deep swoon for a poet. But golly.

Read this on the train this morning, and laughed and laughed.

Is dense. Will need/want to read it again (and again). And immediately acquire everything else I can find by this good sir.

During the holidays, I read poems from 3 books by Goldbarth, a wonderful poet whom I had missed somehow. Even those who do not usually read poetry would find his work interesting.

This book was given to me by a dear friend. Goldbarth is a weirdo, but he's so comfortable with his own weirdness that one can't help but listen to him & laugh at/with him.
