Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems

Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems - Billy Collins

Not every poem Billy Collins writes is a stunner, but so many manage to be funny, wise, epicurean, full of gusto, or just flat- out perfect, and there's always at least one poem in each of his books that is worth the price or admission. In this volume, it's "Table Talk" because no one else can blend talk of Zeno, mortality, the artificial construct of time and how to enjoy trout amandine quite like Billy Collins.
