If you wonder why Tod Marshall was chosen as the Washington State Poet Laureate, read this book and you'll know!
These are not happy poems, well, not all of them, but there is a lot of humor judiciously placed here and there. And the imagery, oh the imagery. His canvas is paper, his paint is ink, his brush is words. Words that make us weep, words that make us shiver, words that make us ponder the meaning of life, the meaning of death, the meaning of living. A veritable feast for the soul.
A small book you will want to read many, many times.
