    1. I was hoping this book of 50 poems, published in 2008, would still be relevant in our current political times of 2017 Unfortunately, only six of them seemed worth remembering And I doubt I would have appreciated any of the other poems in 2008 The six noteworthy ones are timeless The others, just not great poems in general I suspect the editors had a hard time finding really good political poems and this book is slim as it is If they had edited out all the bad ones, it would have been a pamphlet [...]

Here s a HANDSOME book Just in time for the three legged race to the White House, now that the candidates have their back up singers, and the burlap bags are paid in full.But I will only vote for the gayest candidate, so, I know EXACTLY who I m voting for, as you can imagine Gay sex WILL save the world, I PROMISE I m working on it But I do wish Eileen Myles was running for president again this year Yeah I know Jimmy Carter is a poet, and I LOVE Jimmy the gayest of them all , but Eileen had some [...]


    3. 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.


    4. My favorite poets writing my favorite kind s of poems And special happened Maybe it s my fault maybe my expectations were too high To quote from Dan Chelotti s contribution to the book, Why aren t you the bomb that I want you to be

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


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