Last Night


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
