Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is modern poetry. The references and allegories are deep and personal. I had to read it slowly three times, and I am sure I missed some references and points. The flow is good. The imagery is vivid with only a smattering of vulgarities.

I believe this series of poems is semi autobiographical, as is some of the other work Scott has presented. As such we get a glimpse into some of Scott's experiences and his personal take on them.

A fascinating work.

Format: Paperback
Rambo Goes to Idaho is a fearless and irreverent take on pop culture, masculinity, art, and America. In the world of this collection, not only is every hero a coward, and every poet a politician, but every joker is deadly serious. Scott Abels is taking contemporary poetry to the places it's never thought to go.
