In Calef Brown's poem We Go Together, he jubilantly decrees: We go together / like fingers and thumbs. / Basses and drums. / Pastries and crumbs. In You Are Two (Kiwis), he muses, I am quite frequently, / reminded by thee / of a kiwi. / Either kind. Yes, silliness and sentimentality have free rein in this curious selection of childlike poems about love and friendship, each accompanied by an equally absurd, stylized acrylic painting. Like Sandol Stoddard's I Like You, We Go Together this book makes an offbeat Valentine's gift for anyone with a good sense of humor and a penchant for wordplay.
