The Foggist

4.33  ·  Rating Details  ·  9 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Rising from a welter of muscle confusion, these new poems from Dean Young confront a range of contemporary topics: life, love and the loss of heart. Young writes, "There are voices tangled outside." In THE FOGGIST, his work is cataloging the threads, pointing to the spaces between them and waving. Is it morning where you are?
