W. Joe Hoppe powers up the poetry scene with [i]Galvanized[/i], his latest inimitable trip through the world of old cars, new babies, high and lowbrow art, tools of industry, down and outers, and, of course, The American Road. Joe's mighty, mighty heart is on full throttle here. As hypertext pioneer and novelist Michael Joyce says, "Sinister, smartass, delicate, tough all at once . . . " Joe's are poems that last, clear-eyed and accessible, and with a beauty inescapable and unabashedly working class American. Don't mind the grease, this love is bolted to the bone. Joe's a genuine, and these poems are polished paeans to the boldness of an unflinchingly generous heart.
