    • Half-baked Zen, Midwestern style. These are the poems of a man who apparently thinks every dream he's had, or random doddering free association he's made, is worth publishing, and for whom no metaphor is too absurd.

Walking across a plowed cornfield seems an activity far removed from most people's experience these days.
