A nice poet's hottest, such a lot provocative book.

He desires on the middle of a closed system,
Like the criminal procedure, or a process of love,
Where folktale, recipe, and loved ones custom
Refer again to the maze that they're of.
--from "A process: PCP, or Angel dirt"

Taste and urge for food are contraposed in Boss Cupid, the 12th e-book of poems through the integral San Francisco poet, who's additionally the critical craftsman and quintessentially a love poet, although no longer of necessary love.Variations on how we're governed through our wishes, those poems make a startling and eloquent gloss on wanton wish, relocating freely from the tale of King David and Bathsheba to Arthur Rimbaud's vitamin to the tastes of Jeffrey Dahmer. As hot and clever because it is ribald and crafty, this choice of Thom Gunn's is his richest yet.
