    David Kirby has been a huge influence on me as a poet I took workshops with him in my first go around at grad school, his work has always been meaningful to me, and he blurbed my book I ve been a fan for years So that s the context in which I say this book is probably my favorite thing he s ever written It is rich, touching, funny, smart, memorable, meaningful It reminds me of Bob Hicok s Elegy Owed, which is in my top five poetry collections ever I don t know if I d call these poems elegies, ex [...]

    I celebrated being half way through my challenge by reading David Kirby s get up, please , another stellar collection of humorous, erudite constellations that combine rock and roll, the blues, philosophy, divergent quotes that reveal themselves as whatever the plural of mot juste is, and the poet s great and mythic optimism If on,y there were an elixir de Kirby, a champagne or cognac that I could drink so that I might believe these clothes will reek deliciously of sex once I know this While I w [...]

    4.5 starsI found two or three of the poems in this collection a little too formulaic and reliant on Kirby s own scrapbook narrative style Still, most of them are zippy, fun, deep, accessible, deeply accessible little texts that have Kirby at the top of his game while maybe riding a pogo stick for a couple of extra feet.

    David Kirby came to SLC to read in February He is a great reader of his poems and just as nice and chatty in person as you might imagine, having read his poems I love the voice of his poems, and the talkativeness I love how his poems leap from idea to idea but stitch them all together with ideas and images.I love many of his poems, and this book has some new great ones.I have enjoyed reading one or two poems every morning as I drink my coffee.
