The poems in this collection, then, deal with man's basic aloneness in being; a castaway, if you will, in his own existence. Poet

some of the poems I understand and I can imagine. I like the imagery in the poems and the way that they make you feel. Some of the poems don't make sense to me, but that could be because I don't have much experience with poetry. Other than that the book is very nice and simple and clean looking. I love the cover as well.
