Get on the Dobby Gibson bus! Quirky and insightful, this talented author's poems will dazzle you with their insights of both the mundane and large issues in life. They move quickly, dancing from idea to idea, image to image, but never forgetting to bring the reader along on the ride. Ranging from funny and light to deeply serious, these powerfully potent poems will capture your attention. Highly recommended
