Poetry. Anselm Berrigan's eighth collection of poems, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, is exactly as its title describes. Wide-ranging in forms, densities, and aesthetics—and written from numerous collaborations, prompts, and influences—these poems express poetry's astonishing possibilities. At the same time, they evince this singular poet's consciousness in the here and now, as a family and community member looking at the seams of public life.
