Emily Nussbaum…who wants a valentine stained with 2,500 thumbprints? I do, it turns out. Because while Kooser's wry, homespun valentines may not suit every poetry lover's taste—too sentimental for some, too straightforward for others—they are also perversely disarming, a trail of daisies leading to the bedroom door. Over 22 years, Kooser has discovered a startling variety of ways to invert and enliven the vocabulary of romance, finding tender implications in even the mustiest Valentine's symbols.
