Read in February, 2012

This book was given to me to read by a 20something. Being a bit older I must admit I am not used to a book of poetry not having a cadence or meter to draw me in to the thought.

My definition of poetry would be found in a composition that is rhythmical. This is a book of a persons train of thought written in short lines and a grouped structure to look like a poem but reads as a journal or conversation. That being said, Scott Cairns thought process in this book of collected thoughts is sometimes profound, sometimes a bit out there, sometimes linear, sometimes satirist and at times Just beyond my grasp of understanding but very interesting just the same.
