I knew the first time I read this collection of poems that I would want to go back and reread it time and again. With each reading, I discover a deeper--or even alternate--meaning to random poems that I thought I had gotten to the bottom of. In my mind, the layers are nearly infinite.
I have certain favorites--like Park Statue--which is only a sentence long but speaks volumes. While it's completely different from, say, What They Were Reading, all of the poems share the author's whimsical observations of life and especially of the natural world (both real and imagined).
This is a book I'm happy to have in my collection.
