I love his poetry perhaps even more than I enjoy his prose and novels. A wonderful perspective and an amazing poet.

Some poems speak with great force; others, like "The Salad," are bewildering.

I'm not sure if "Salad" is included in this collection: the book that I did read is titled A PART,
but was not found in any of the searches, from Amazon to Library of Congress.
