Bob Hicok

Sex & Love &

€ 18.95

Throughout, poetry is discovered to be among our most effective tools to examine the delirium of making contact.From `À la carte`:She took her underwear off in the restaurant where you eat in the dark-fingered herself in the dark while noticing the complexity of saffron in the dark-slipped her finger in my mouth in the dark-when we got outside we took her underwear to the Seine and set it free¬-and went our separate ways… Bob Hicok`s poems have appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry, and the American Poetry Review. His books have been awarded the Bobbitt Prize from the Library of Congress and named a `Notable Book of the Year` by Booklist. Hicok has worked as an automotive die designer and a computer system administrator. He is currently an associate professor of English at Virginia Tech`-
