Poetry. Graham Foust's third book offers agile poems of dread and humor. Robert Creeley writes: "These poems move in close to luxuriant circles, round and round each particular syllable, neither hurrying nor dragging behind—just there. At times there seems an almost physical presence to them, a third dimension, which is substance."
