"[Todd Boss] can make any rhyme feel like a concealed weapon." —Sherman Alexie

With poems about loss, home, marriage, and the inner music of our lives, Pitch is a series of variations on an overturned piano. By turns bright and dark like the keys on a keyboard, these poems demonstrate the range of one of contemporary poetry’s most musical poets, a master of internal rhyme.

of snowdrifted bramble
where it lay,
moaning chaotically . . .

Editorial Reviews

Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Boss’ poems generate their own rambunctious music and remind us ‘yes, / miracles happen.’”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
“The poems ring clearly; ‘pitch,’ they recall, is a way to fall as well as a way to sing.”
Christian Science Monitor
“Boss flawlessly employs subtle music.”
Washington Independent Review
“This is poetic form within and without that makes a true energy.”
