Adam's Dream: Poems for a Latter Day
Adam's Dream is both learned and accessible, inviting us to look hard at the world and take delight therein: a child wearing cereal bowls for shoes, a meatloaf sandwich a blink away from being loaves and fishes, tumblers in the kitchen sink taking flight like "a flock of cardinals." Prepare to dream you are riding to China on a bike to become a poet. --Lance Larsen, Backyard Alchemy.
