Prayers to a Dead God (the god is Hermes, Greek god of poetry), is an extraordinary compendium of powerful and moving poems, dealing with a range of topics rarely matched by any poet. The lyrical reminiscents of the sweetness of childhood amid the brutal and grime-filled tenements of Jersey City are marvelously and strangely beautiful. The poems of modern Washington and corruption in the prison system are uncommonly poignant; the many nature poems refreshingly original.
Most of the poems are substantial A very few are exceeding short, as this one, entitled BREAD: "Let it never be said / there can be a Heaven / without fresh bread."
