Yesterday, I picked up four new poetry books from our shelves. I browsed each book last night before I went to bed, and I was struck by the last one. I love the title and cover of Dean Rader’s Self-Portrait as Wikipedia Entry. This is his second full-length poetry collection. I am happy to share two of his poems from this collection.
