Veteran poet Fred Marchant brings readers more of his fine work with "The Looking House". Focusing on the human evolution and the wars that cause so much suffering, Marchant paints in broad strokes and hopes to give readers much to ponder. Highly recommended. "Camp and Locust": House on the corner where I grew up, second floor flat I still find in dreams,//window from which I see Candy/squirm out of his collar again.//It is always a lurid, purple night,/the middle of summer. He is taking off,/having figured it out, and is headed toward/ all that existence promises, even to dogs.
