About this title:
Poetry. "Geoffrey Gatza's poems go straight to the point. From one to another the plane is consistent, the tone both literate and congenial; the feeling, one of an assessment of options while moving through choice to definition, a definition-in-progress of how to be, allowing large time outs for horseplay, an inventory of asides that end up occupying large chunks of mind. The book as ethos--you can live with it--you wish--why not?"--Bill Berkson.
