really liked it
Recommended for: poets, latchkey kids

Say a book of poetry falls open. On one page is a three line poem, on the other a poem that stretches down to the bottom. You'll go for the short one, right? That's why I like Bliss's The Balloonists - it's broken into bite-sized chunks.

These prose-poems are easy to read, and the subject matter gets me right here[taps heart], as I too have parents with problems, and I too have wondered at lonesome blinking yellow traffic lights.
