Publisher Comments:

Broken and Reset: Selected Poems 1966-2006 mirrors poet V. B. Price's self-education. Written while he was earning a living as a reporter, columnist, editor, and teacher, the poems explore the great learning experiences of his life, his attraction to New Mexico and Chaco Canyon, and his struggle to make sense of the modern world.

The title Broken and Reset reflects this journey, illustrating the healing process that Price embraced in New Mexico and the great learning experiences of his life.

NO PERFORMANCE

Afraid to start,

afraid to fail,

I procrastinate

at learning

how to die,

even though I know

the fulfillment of my life

is told

in how relaxed I am

with death

at the center of my life.

To die as I was born,

with no intention,

moving out beyond, at any time

--what's the difference

between babies and the wise?

Only that the one

could choose

to be so freely given.

Synopsis:

These poems reveal Price's healing from the crippling traps of childhood and the rejection of the conformity required by modern American life.
