"The boy next door takes out his pocketknife, slits his palm along the fate line, says we can be blood brothers now, hands kissing wetly..." -from "Catholic Boy" Newly revised and featuring poems brand new to this edition, How the Boy Might See It is a gorgeous exploration of the sensual, the spiritual, and the carnal by the award-winning author of All the Heat We Could Carry. Readers familiar with Charlie Bondhus or coming to his art for the first time will be captured by the lyricism of his voice and ability to find beauty even in the shadows. "Through humor and heartache these poems mine the glories and perils of modern sexuality. How the Boy Might See It serves as testament to both the splendor and simplicity of our human search for tenderness and touch, a sweet Whitmanic hymn to the way the universe expands as each young life discovers the relish of the forbidden. Reading these poems we are reconnected to our fumbling flesh and reminded that a type of salvation is available to us from an embodied surrender to wonder and delight." -Dan Vera Author of Speaking Wiri Wiri.
