Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Scholar of poetry and prolific poet himself Benjamin S. Grossberg comes to readers with his own collection, "Underwater Lengths in a Single Breath". Thought provoking and profound in their aims, he offers much verse that does far more than simply entertain. "Underwater Lengths in a Single Breath" is a strong collection that should not be missed. "West End of Dallas": Eighteen months ago a stranger went home with a hustler and/now he and I are leaning on a railing in the West End district/ of Dallas in front of a restaurant neither of us can afford//and he's telling me about the hustler because he's absolutely/sure that this was the moment, th at it only takes one exposure/and besides, he was careful every other time.
