Knew of Disch as a Science Fiction writer and essayist before reading his poetry, which is remarkably good. Rhymed verse for the most part of a very high caliber. About 7 really accomplished poems here that are worth re-visiting and rereading. But the whole collection is engaging and I breezed through it in a day and a half. If you like Gail White or any of the so-called "new formalists" in poetry, you'll dig Disch if you haven't discovered him already.

“What to Accept

The fact of mountains. The actuality
Of any stone — by kicking, if necessary.
The need to ignore stupid people,
While restraining one's natural impulse
To murder them. The change from your dollar,
Be it no more than a penny,
For without a pretense of universal penury
There can be no honor between rich and poor.
Love, unconditionally, or until proven false.
The inevitability of cancer and/or
Heart disease. The dialogue as written,
Once you've taken the role. Failure,
Gracefully. Any hospitality
You're willing to return. The air
Each city offers you to breathe.
The latest hit. Assistance.
All accidents. The end.”
