What's This, Bombardier? by Ryan Flaherty

Selected by Alan Michael Parker as Winner of the 2011 Lena-Miles Wever Todd Poetry Prize "Beneath the wit of these poems—and wit there is in dizzying plenty—there are sobering concerns, skeptical and philosophical quandaries that, almost as if by mistake, make themselves felt. . . . Source is, no doubt, the stake—'source' . . . this adhesive thing that is Flaherty's, given to us in unsparing generosity, in serious play—not source exactly, but resource inexactly, in poems that are 'brilliant / without all the fuss of brilliance.'" —Dan Beachy-Quick
