There are many great lines in this book of poems, a couple of my favorites just as a sample are:
- like a nuclear fart for an Admiral nurse
- the blonde marine
with legs from here to Montezuma
at the mess hall having lunch.
That got me humming the Corps hymn
like a traitor the rest of the day
- I’m the fog
nearly caresses us.
The damp smoke
feels like barrooms
and my first hooker
I can see for miles.
There are so many wonderful images a sailor experiences and this author has captured many of them in these poems.
Thank to my shipmate (and author) Malcolm Torres for telling me about this book.
