Food ♦ Family ♦ Friends

What food you eat, whether your family nurtures or abuses you, and how friends fit into your life determine whether you live in despair or delight, cringing or cavorting through your days. F.I. Goldhaber's poems capture the marvelous and the malignant of all three.

"With an often politically satiric voice, Pairs of Poems embraces freeways and oceans, warehouse stores and forests, urban parks and picketers. In these twenty-two pairings, F.I. Goldhaber's images move easily from the domestic to the celestial, from a cat's small nose-smudges left on a window to the moon 'marked with sleep lines' at dawn. This collection is the candid record of a seasoned writer who, when faced with 'plot roadblocks,' turns to a 'steamy hot shower,' wondering with wit '...how any good prose/was written before/running water.' "
