Last Night

Poems

Winner of the 2011 Blue Lynx Prize. "The poems in Last Night are drawn from the lost who walk the streets, from discarded road signs and postcards, the natural world, memory, whimsy, and vision. They are peopled by every imaginable sort of character, all of them making a hard, last ditch gamble on the thing, or the person, they love or can't live without. This is gritty, tough, wonderful, compassionate work, the language as direct and clear as anything in American poetry today."Christopher Howell

Reviews

"[Richard] Hugo and Raymond Carver would have recognized a kindred spirit in Brush whose poetry is composed of the cracked music of everyday life and a longing for transcendence thereof."—Mike Dillon, City Living, April 2012
