Good Morning Bone Crusher! is a book of poems written in homage to the sun. These poems invite us to see the world as is, uncorrupted by ego and prejudice. A cinéma-vérité in which William Carlos Williams walks with A.R. Ammons and Lao Tsu in a wildflower field where Gertrude Stein and Harpo Marx play badminton over a tattered net.
