Too Bright to See

In this collection of poetry, David Booth uses a variety of forms and genres, and he paints a picture that is both real and literary of life in his native city of San Francisco. There are shelter-in-place friends, lovers, caretakers, Puck, sixth graders, grandmothers, Harry Hay, a sacred pedestrian, and Gilda Radner. In a poem imagining Bach as a little boy, he describes a piece of music as “sometimes solemn, sometimes joyous, often times ardent and always tumbling humanity,” an apt description for the lyrical writing throughout the book.
