Inspired by the natural-voice asesthetics of the Iowa City Actualists (of which he was a seminal writer and editor), the Beats, and the New York Poets, Morty Sklar writes with humor, intimacy and original insight in this thirty-six-year collection of poems addressing everything from heroin addiction to honor, innocent joy to mortal resignation, loneliness to everlasting love. "Morty Sklar writes from an honesty and courage of the heart. For that I salute him, and all his peers, his colleagues, and who share this inexorable dedication." - Isabella Gardner
