      Good collection Especially likes The War of Wars by Wanda Coleman, Dove by Caroline Knox, and A Citizen by Don Bogen The latter has an excellent historical view of America today Not an uplifting book, really, but it presents a fine variety of pets.

      My head responded with an agony like twine wrapped and cutting of circulation, forced to feel texture and structure and force all at once.

    8. Katie TerBush on said:

      Some poems were a little weird but the majority were deeply moving and really captured the attitudes and spirits of the US.
