The combustible verses comprising this anthology examine the unsettling way people, places, and relationships affect everyday life. Exposing the baggage, detours, accommodations, and push and pull of the male/female dance, the verses reveal what the postcards really said from the backstage of the subconscious where the messages are throwing a now-or-never party. Full of turbulent encounters and startling discoveries—a groom dancing with his ex at his wedding, a cashier in a hold-up by her former one-night-stand, something you hope you won’t have to tell your daughter—this collection is a tailbone toss across the continental divide in a jeep that dropped its muffler ten miles back.
