Absolutely Delightful

Denmark, Kangaroo, Orange Denmark, Kangaroo, Orange by Kevin Griffith

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
An absolutely delightful collection of poems.

Smart and accessible.

Fresh and funny.

Lighthearted and thoughtful.

I adore it. Totally.

While reading I kept thinking if there was a band that could put these poems to music it would be Magnetic Fields.

The highlights: "Your Pants Look Disappointed," "The Kite," "Marriage," and "Coffee."

I whole heartedly recommend this book to those serious about poetry and those who want to like poetry but claim they don't "understand it."
