"Mojgani is not your typical national poetry slam champion...The playfulness, startling originality, and lyric optimism are all gravy. He's simply the best there is right now." -- Taylor Mali, "The Last Time As We Are"

This is an amazing collection, and it should be on the shelf of any self respecting poet or poetry lover. He tackles tough issues like Billy the Kid, and why poets are starting to hate the over used line break. Well, he only tackles one of those directly. Some of the poems in this book feel like they need to be screamed out from on top of a mountain, and some of them feel like they need to be read softly, alone, by just enough candlelight to see the page. Sure, every other poem is about feathers or birds--well, actually it's not, sorry bird loving people. This work is varied in its tones and subjects, all of them well placed.
I get the feeling that Anis writes like he recites. Slowly placed, carful words, each one aware of the next and the above, clear in their mission are interspaced with the fury of writing lightning in a thunderstorm.
This book will make you forget your hunger. This book will make you remember your love. This book will make you stop at various points of the day and stare at some insignificant little object for long periods of time. This book will give you wings. This book will make you magic. Buy this book.
