Collins is the poet of the quotidian - no other poet can lyricize journal entries about sitting and watching like he can. This collection made up of his best from several other collections with a section of new material is imminently readable. There are laughs along the way, as Collins comments on the world and people around him. There are aching passages that cut to the very quick of the human condition. If you're a poetry reader, you should be reading Collins.

Highly Recommended!!!!!
