    Explosive, imaginative, amazing.When I start to review this collection of poems I can think of only good things to say. These poems are worth a reread. Shelton's writing is dynamic, if not a little bit avant-garde. I thoroughly enjoyed his play with styles. Some lines are nothing short of genius. At times, the poetry can be hard to decipher--that's why it's best to read the poems over a longer stretch of time. However, the connections Shelton makes are incredible. 5 stars.
