Poetry. Michael Chitwood's seventh collection of poems is tremendously varied in shape and pace, from terse, reflexive aphorisms to rangy narratives. No book about happiness has made me half as happy as I was made by POOR-MOUTH JUBILEE, Michael Chitwood's sublime book about sorrow. Chitwood gives sorrow all its due respect--and no more, so the book is often laugh-out funny in its wisdom. Don't pray for the sick, Chitwood instructs, 'They have their own problems.' And POOR-MOUTH JUBILEE pulses with the exhilaration of being alive--Andrew Hudgins.
