Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems

Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems - Billy Collins Really enjoyed this collection. Not every poem works for me, so it feels uneven at times, but the good ones more than make up for the bumpy ones. Some amble along not making much of an account for themselves til the very end, where a single idea can win you over. The strongest of them impact you from the beginning and grip til the end. One of our better poets.
