Perfect Bound, 80 pages - Editor Chris Bodor, and assistant editor Michael Sanders, known for their work on Heart Pour-The Love Book (Poet Plant Press, 2011) are on board once again as the creative team for this collection. Wayne Mason sets the stage with his foreword on gaining a book reading audience behind the factory walls. Mike Watt, bassist for the legendary band the Minutemen, offers a poem about a lighthouse keeper. College student Bobby Smith writes about job expectations after graduation. Teacher David Dannov reports on the educational system. It is all here; shift changes, retirement, house work. Kimmy Van Kooten's poem and illustration about a hobo in a forest is even added as a reminder that there are some among us who do not work.
