The Bones Poems

The Bluebonnet Sutras by Laurence Musgrove

by William Virgil Davis

The writing in this remarkable collection makes such masterful use of bones as metaphor that the book reads as much like a single long poem as it does a bringing together of individual lyrics. Open the book anywhere and enjoy a small gem of poetry, or read the whole book - even in a single sitting - and enjoy a moving and brilliant long poem.

Order from any bookstore, local or online. This title is also available from Fleur Fine Books of Galveston, Texas.
