If you want to compare what I done to that other stack, start with the gnomic brief poems in Way Stations, & the Midwest Elegies, & the dream-vision "Grain Elevator". Spread from there to the Island Road sonnet sequence, and from thence to Stubborn Grew + sequels (Forth of July). Read the poem "All Clear" in Fulcrum #2. Read the poem "Dove Street" in The Hat (if they decide to take it!). It's a Mississippi Gulf cosmos, with a little Rhode Island Red floating down on a raft.
