Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A book of angles. These poems come from one bend in the mind, then another, from one tilt in the heart, then another. . . . Deliciously agile."—Tim Seibles

From "Accident":

Gray was the truck cab, black its body. Yellow the taxi in front, red the surround of the traffic signal./The tomato-faced driver eyed his watch, behind schedule with green dreams of money and lust's blue fantasies. For him, the signal was still a singing canary./For the man and woman the light had changed.

Robert Miltner's Against the Simple won the Wick Poetry Chapbook Award.
