    This was very much an impulse buy An ad popped up on my Facebook feed from a publisher I feel an attachment to despite not having read many of their books Beacon I agree with their mission I suppose And the concept of this book was right up my alley I have a hard time finding poetry books to buy and feel I should buy I was an easy sell I pushed the buy button immediatelyI don't know if I would go so far as to say that I regret the purchase but I certainly feel let down The introduction spoke of needing these words That poets can rouse us from our torpor and persuade us to act But where was that fire?
