Lee Chilcote has written a beautifully crafted homage to Cleveland; one that manages to embrace the complications of both parenthood and urban living. Far from reverential, these poems are tributes nevertheless--suffused with dark humor, clarity, and empathy that overrides the sometimes-knotty reality of life in the Rust Belt.
