These poems are real. True searching is going on here, but if you don't take matters of the spirit and the heart seriously, or if you don't trust poetry to poke its fingers into the nettles and moist dark underbelly of truth, if you see poems as bit-players in larger insulated hothouse-flower tugs of war between this or that academically blood-drained 'school' or 'movement' then this book is not for you. If on the other hand you count yourself among the ranks of those still willing to be moved by the honest and carefully crafted language of a terrific poet, go find this damned book. Read especially 'Sonnets to my Daughters, 20 Years Into the Future' and see if you don't feel a noticeable shift in your chest, your heart being subtly changed.
