Designs From the Interior: Poems
by John Barton (Goodreads Author)

While this is an interesting artifact as a collection of queer poetry in the midst of the AIDS crisis, it does not stand up well as simply a collection of poetry. The writing is a little pedestrian, and no poem stands alone as a gem. I was, unfortunately, rather bored by it.
