This chapbook is a single poem in sequence, a compressed and searing meditation on "man as maker." The ghosts of Marx and Shakespeare and Franco appear in this haunted work, as well as parents, industrialists, teachers, musicians, writers, lost friends, lovers, and teachers. Music Like Dirt is a serious and hard-won accomplishment, by one of America's foremost poets.
