What a great collection. I don't really know anything about poetry, but I liked these. I think Berman is more an observational poet than a liguistic poet, meaning he says stuff that makes you think about the world, sort of like early Modest Mouse maybe, versus stuff that makes you swoon from the beauty of how it's written. My favorite poem was Self Portrait at 28. Intelligent, sometimes funny, overall really good. There were some lines in there that I bookmarked and copied down so I'd remember them.
