2% Butterscotch By Ricky Garni
Paperback: $30.60
Prints in 3-5 business days
A year that begins in November and ends with October. Although you cannot meditate on fun, this book is clearly about that, I mean, the first poem even says so right there. But who cares about fun?... More > We all do. OK. Also add: one and a half cups of grief, a pinch of Howdy Do and a tablespoon of What Gives and you have got yourself some Butterscotch, and it means you got yourself a tome of donuts marriages, Hollywood dogs fetching bones near swingsets, Jalapenos Muchos, Marilyn Monroe at lightspeed, the word 'scythe' for some reason and a vaguely horny Emily Dickinson - blame it on the booze - and more. This honey of a door weight is close to 700 pages and is not for the faint of eyeballs or weightlifting - in fact, it is the ideal book of verse to carry with you in sketchy neighborhoods and to have by your side when you buy your own island and you need a softcover pillow on which to dream and stuff just like that. When I buy my island, I am going to buy one of these just like this. I ain't lyin'.< Less

An innocent visit to a family grave sends my mind a'reeling back in the 1994. I couldn't understand why the Mother and Father had plots next to the daughter-in-law and her small children, and yet the... More > son was nowhere in sight.
