I love "The Seed Thieves" too. Robert is my brother and I am telling you that up front because it matters. I love the fact that these poems are about his life. I don't know if all these things happened to him, but I was there for some of them, and he tells the truth. I am "the woman" in "Heimlich in Candlelight." It happened. "Still Shot" and "The Slide King" are painfully real. I was there. Robert doesn't make a false move in these poems. They are crafted so beautifully AND they never lie. Quite a feat. I've got a gigantic bullshit detector (ask Robert) and I would out him in a minute if I thought he was a big fat liar. My heart is with his most recent poems and I need them to be published. MC
