I tend not to like things by writers who were brilliant in their careers and are writing at the end of their lives, in my mind trying to re-capture their early success or brilliance . . . jury is still out on this one, although poems about bodily functions (or lack thereof) as one ages seem like a ramble to me . . . but love love love several of these, including the one on identity . . . nehti, nehti . . . the library didn't have the collected poems, so I'll have to go back . . . .
