I am incredulous at the piffle written in the other reviews of this insipid book on this site. Someone even cites Poley as comparable to Billy Collins!
Open it - read the first poem 'Honey'. Then go to Paul Farley's award-winning first volume 'The Boy from the Chemists is Here to See You' and read Farley's infinitely superior poem 'Treacle'. A blind man could spot the anxiety of influence.
Thus the tenor of Poley's book (and it would seem his entire oevre) is established: poems that are pale shadows of work by other poets on subjects about which much has already been better said.
Avoid.
