This is a wonderful book of poetry. From the light and witty to the more deep and thought-provoking, Collings' poetry weaves word-tapestries out of seemingly disparate threads. And unlike many other "poets," who seem to think their job is to create something either nasty or incomprehensible, Collings seems to view it as his job to add something understandable AND beautiful to the world. With this book of poems, he largely succeeds. A wonderful book for anyone who loves poetry - or who wants to start.
