An exotic romp in the mundane. Nothing special here but that which is special in each of us. With brutal honesty and sometimes acrid humor, M. D. Friedman soars and stumbles from confusion to love. Many of the poems were inspired by various works of art. M. D. walks in and out of the artwork like it was a grocery store usually leaving with what he needs and occasionally without making a mess.
