This second book of poems by Cody Walker offers an unlikely array of characters: Edward Lear, Mitt Romney, Amy Clampitt, and Andy Kaufman share the stage. Walker himself is ever-present, with his shrugs, his heartbreak, his “way-out rhymes”:I’d like to write some lines about the snow,
the snow seems so
a flock of gulls, late for a meeting.
Full of comic interruptions and grave forecasts, these poems surprise, delight, and terrify. Cody Walker lives in Seattle.
