Some poems are definitely better than other, better constructed, better executed, and others are just poor. Sometimes I felt that the lack of a clear style felt more like a rambling Beat poet, and the sporadic line breaks confused me. My favorites are James Dean on Havenhurst (because I loved JF ...

3.59 of 5 Votes: 3
Original, inviting artwork and the pieces of story that are referring to inter-generational ties are engaging.
