The Gold Tooth in the Crooked Smile of God is daring poetry collection by established poet Douglas Cole.

From the book:

Black Fish

the hill people trickle in

from their blind hollows

in the back roads under

camouflage tarp covers

deep in the cedar groves

they’ve come to town

in their finery

and smoke-soaked coats

drinking, laughing

bigger and louder than ever

while beauty appears

and crosses the street

to the Salvation Army

in Morton on Saturday night
