Too Much of This World

by Erin Murphy
     
 


Poetry. "Erin Murphy's poems delight and teach by poking fun: at poets giving readings, Burger King signs, poetry contests, and men who say I'll take care of those wasps for ya, honey. If you're tired of poems that try to be a little too smart for their own britches, these'll take care of 'em for ya, honey"--H.L. Hix.See more details below
