Paperback: $12.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The second in the Wavy trilogy of smooth-sailing poetry collections from 1995-2007. I took up this project kicking and screaming, literally, really super fussy and not easy to live or be with kind of... More > thing, but somehow, now, I like it. Seriously.

Pommes Frites By Ricky Garni
Paperback: $8.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Do I hate everything in this book? No, I don't. In fact I even made a separate little book for 'Chinese Proverbs' (called 'Pillows') and 'Memories' was the first poem in 'Make It Wavy.' But I can say... More > I hated the rest – until I edited it again, twice. Then I said, 'Not bad, not bad at all.' And then I edited it one more time and said, 'But not really good, either.' I recommend that you read this book once, and only edit it twice.< Less
Pinky Embrace By Ricky Garni
Paperback: $14.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The 2015 poetry rev (Rev 2.015) contains many of the signature moves you might expect from Crispy: fancy foreign phrases, so-so ponderous philosophical enigmas, unbridled name-dropping in the extreme... More > (Van Gogh and Henry James come right to mind), squiggly lines, Melba toast, the immortal Ford Pinto, Conrad Veidt and a variety of tasty chocolate desserts. Yet something new this year is apparent before you open the book: an illustration, a real one, by a wonderful young artist: Gus Svara. And once inside, you will discover the absence of a table of contents, and the addition of a much more sensible and handy Index in the back. So now when you want to read a poem that contains the word "UGH" or "amuse-bouche" (fancy foreign phrase) don't start at the beginning: start at the end! And please, continue on, in whatever cockamamie fashion you care to. We don't make the rules here, we just break them. Enjoy this rev, because, honest – this rev's for you. Happy reading, The Author FEH5313< Less

FROM THE INTRODUCTION: Should I be happy to hear such a beautiful song, or should I be sad that I did not write the song? Ah, to be skinny and write songs, and yet, on the other hand, to eat... More > strawberries and not worry about quality, other than the fleshy fruit quality of strawberries. Ah, to be wavy and do both...< Less

FRED By Ricky Garni

What can I say of FRED? It is an homage and loving thought tossed at my good friend, Fred, whose name, actually, is not, of course, Fred. It's Gabe. Meanwhile, were any book of mine to be counted as... More > a friend, it would be FRED. It recounts maxims, Italian movies, chows, $1 weiners, perilous adventures where very little happens and breezy reflections on what is and is not valuable – like friendship and unanswered questions and Anthony 'Tony' Quinn. And like a good friend, it snuggles. But more than an ordinary friend–FRED is a buddy–the kind of book I would take fishing, were I to fish, which I don't, as I am afraid to death of worms, which haunt me in my dreams.< Less

Weed By Ricky Garni
