My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Funny slash beautiful slash easy to read. To my pre-MFA delight. Skid and First Course in Turbulence are far better. But the early Dean Young is worth reading, if only for that great Magritte poem, Ready-Made Bouquet. He’s got some great poems toward the end of the book about his nursing years, (he went to nursing school at one time). You know, scalpels and guts hanging out of corpses. These bio-med poems reminded me of Design with X (the first Dean Young that is almost impossible to find). So slowly, to sop up the juices.
