I first encountered Ken Waldman when he performed poetry and on the fiddle at my local arts performing center. I was fascinated by his tales of teaching in Alaska and of being a writer and poet.
To be sure, the speaker in Grey’s poems doesn’t take himself too seriously, yet these are serious poems, serious and often funny. A few are written in third person, and most are in first person.
This collection is a poetry book in 3 parts. It’s indicative of how the overall book will shape up based on the parts the poet divides it into as the groupings themselves can be used to enhance surrounding poems.
