Don A. Hoyt:

Bootleg Press
PO Box 158
Uniondale NY, 11553

24 pp.

Don Hoyt is a classic poet--that is, he takes a single emotion, event or scene and draws it out through vivid and complex language. Lots of similes and metaphors and that sort of poetry stuff. Traditional work where the term "craftsmanship" can still be applied. It's not the sort of poetry a person zips through like a comic book, but the type that should be enjoyed over a cup of hot java, a box of bon-bons and a snowy day outside. From philosophy to satire, Hoyt covers the gamut in these 15 poems.--Roger-Kyle Keith
