About the Book

When the author came to Detroit, it was still a little bit of a boomtown.  Henry Ford started it over on Piquette Street, 1904-1910. Now, large parts of the city have gone over to urban farming, as symbolized by the Goose Girl and her crowd. In this volume there’s folklore as in Granny, fairy tale and myth, even one going back to the Roman Empire and Christianity.  There are war poems and a long meditation on technology in the form of the railroads and on creativity. The book is in free verse form.
