So One Could Have



In So One Could Have, Mark Salerno investigates the tension between memory and desire without ever resolving “matters” into pat answers. He wants to know, as we do, what we think about how we feel and, as importantly, how we feel about what we think. While this is serious work, an antic wit and deep intelligence keeps these poems from taking themselves too seriously. They are alive and are here to remind us that, as always, being so is the point.
