    1. This is the poetry book that kept me writing poems, just to reach towards being this kind of writer There is one poem with the line, who are ashamed by now, to have shoulders It s a terrible reference out of context, but you know, it has stayed with me for 18 years.


    2. Conjures eloquent, surrealistic images of death and decay Hallucinatory in nature these poems are soul transforming in that they practically hum with the forlorn quality of life when hope has flown awayEspecially meaningful for me among all the others was the last poem in the book, The Spirit Says, You Are Nothing



    3. Levis, of course, is always great this is his first book, however, and his coming of age and the presence of Phil Levine as a mentor is pretty obvious Fascinating to see the germs of Levis s later and lasting voice in some of these early pieces.


    4. Definitely some emotionally moving poems toward the end of this one Will read his other stuff if I come across it.
