About this title


“While others are busy catching their own reflection in the storefront of poetry, [John] Godfrey goes to work on the damage and squalor of the overlooked. His genius rings true.”—Peter Gizzi

With an enemy
like daylight who needs
the psychology dime
Hips do the work
and I cross the world
