A prayer book for the shit that flabbergasts everybody in town. An instruction manual for a fool to find his or her way out of a paper sack the size of their own life. Measured. Odd. Neato. All the answers to the impossible questions on the impossible quiz. I loved this book.

"Irksome Particulars" is wonderful. It fits in the palm of your hand, so you can carry it around wherever you are, and you will want to carry it with you so you can dip into it for just a minute here and there. The poems are funny and wry and sometimes inane (in a good way?).

"What if it's poetry that's killing all the honeybees?"

"They are now calling it a polar vortex because Arctic air mass is yesterday's sensational language and the last thing anyone needs right now is yesterday's sensational
