Poetry. "Yes, these poems glow with what is most tender in Lorca; but they also strut with what is most wiseass in O'Hara; they brood with what is most earnest in Akhmatova. In this book one hears the footsteps of all the teachers and friends and loved ones and strangers that people Sean Thomas Dougherty's mind (the blood's library) and heart (the blood's dancehall); one recognizes them as the footsteps of our own wide-opened, inescapable world"--Terrance Hayes.
