At moments, this book reminded me what I love about poetry. Zapruder writes in an easy, prose-like style, but his words are deceptively complex. He is a master of the line break and sparely uses punctuation with the effect of compounding the meanings of his words, allowing them to not collapse to a single meaning, but revel in the multiplicity of meanings. Highlights: "Together Yet Also Apart," "Pockets," and the titular "Come On All You Ghosts."
