Larry Gavin is a poet from Faribault, Minnesota. This is his fourth book of poetry, and he’s still trying hard to figure it all out. Walking the swamps and groves with a brace of beagles, or fishing, makes things clearer, but only momentarily. The carp have taught him to keep moving past all obstacles, and he does that the best he can.
