Songs of UnreasonSongs of Unreason by Jim Harrison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jesus, can Harrison write poems!

A Zen master: one-eyed,
vertiginous, in love with gorgeous ass,
food -- even the memory of food --
wine -- even the memory of wine --
cigarettes, his dogs, the ghosts of various cats,
women, Russian poets, the Upper Peninsula,
defiant road-kill, the play
of two immature eagles going south, and a while later
a mother eagle, also heading south.
