    Got this on Kindle, now will be getting the print version, because eInk just doesn t do it justice also, line breaks I discovered Buddy watching We Are Emergencies on YouTube, a polished recital over some twangy guitar riffs It was an eye opener Slam of the best kind, peppered with y all in that scratchy, country voice, speaking pure wisdom It s so easy to get caught up in our thorny little issues, to focus on darkness of the world, write to be topical, to be cynical and clever essen Got this on Kindle, now will be getting the print version, because eInk just doesn t do it justice also, line breaks I discovered Buddy watching We Are Emergencies on YouTube, a polished recital over some...

    I guess this is also my review for Live For A Living, since I read them basically at the same time.I am a little disappointed I heard Crowbirds At Mockingbars, which became one of my favourite poems ever, and wanted to experienceof his work so I got both of these books from the library, but then they mostly turned out to be p boring There are a couple really good poems in here, like the one I mentioned, Water Gun, In Landscape, or Healing Herman Hesse and Bedrooms and Battlescars in Liv I guess this is also my review for Live For A...

    Everything from Buddy Wakefield deserves a read Horse head and Hurling crowbirds at mockingbars are some of my favorite poems of this book, and although i very much like this book, I think my favorite of his is Live for a living Check out the poem Human the Death dance, and the art of die smilingly.

    Gentleman Practice is rightly titled This book is an all out assualt on mediocracy Once again, Buddy Wakefield masters himself on the page Bringing forth all the tangled intestines, all the heart flaps, every crushed hope, and that hope returned Personally, this book has had a huge affect on my life Buddy s word are so uplifting, always in the forward direction No other author has affected my day to day routine like this man His shows are a new level an insanity Bud...

    I always encourage book groups to change things up and read a graphic novel and a book of poetry each year And when it comes to contemporary poetry you can t do better than slam poet Buddy Wakefield Now I know that poetry seems dull to some people, or alien, like opera With that in mind, here s that quote Pretty Woman about opera People s reactions to opera the first time they see it is very dramatic they either love it or they hate it If they love it, they will always love it If they don I always encourage book groups to change things up and read a graphic novel and a book of poetry each year And when it comes to contemporary poetry you can t do better than slam poet Buddy Wakefield Now I know that poetry seems dull...
