    Enviable for its visual beauty the book is formatted with aesthetics squarely in mind and audacity Not every poem works but enough do to warrant whirling through it My favorite? Oh atlas look you forgot my island Slightly gimmicky occasionally striking

    As much as I love the poetry and writings of Joshua Beckman I still couldn’t justify rating this higher It was mostly “meh” with a few redeeming poems that made me stop and think

    I like the size and cut of this book about 4 inches tall While those attributes come likely from economic and environmental rationals it's still nice to handle something slightly different and have something to break up shelving a bit Beyond that the a typical cut immediately breaks apart most of my flippant tendencies in opening a book Instead of paying little mind to the book's shape I'm awash with fond suspicionThat said I also particularly enjoy the near american haiku focus found here haikus in kind though not of the 5 7 5 syllable count sort of way which doesn't make much sense for English since the ratio of morphemes to phonemes is pretty differentas Gary Snyder often points out From this style choice with notions of intentionality aside comes a subtle and natural feeling narrative movement clinging somewhere behind day to day life in the city Regardless of haiku ness the brief snipitshave i made up this word? serve to draw a lot of attention to the minute details one might miss even with a close reading You have to turn the page to get past a set of two or three lines not just accidentally glance at the following set blah blah blah blah this book is fun read it

    I lived in Staten Island for a few months and this extraordinary beautiful little book gets everything right It's become a talisman for me one I have to send away from me so that when I retrieve it I can experience it anew

    Delightful A cute and intelligent book of short witty and playful poems They range from nostalgic and wistful to cheeky and funYou can read it through in 10 minutes if you like but I enjoyed spacing them out savoring one or two at a time
