This is a fantastic example of dicriptive poems.I personally loved it because i am a indian and can relate to it very easily.I like the chapter on the bus, it is very straight and striking.The wrightings are crisp and yet demand attentive thinking.

"at the end of the bumpy ride
with your face on either side
when you get off the bus

you don't step inside the old man's head."

These lines remained in my head long after i finished reading them.i recommend the book to all poetry lovers and deep thinkers.
