Figuring in the Figure
Ben Berman, Able Muse Press Softcover $18.95 (88pp), 978-1-927409-71-8
Stand your ground and make thoughtful observations—carefully, and with aplomb. Ben Berman repeatedly delivers on this not-so-easy dictum. He ain’t no bum.
A fan of Dante’s terza rima rhyme schemes, Berman’s early book, Strange Borderlands, won the Peace Corps Award for Best Book of Poetry. He edits Solstice Literary Magazine and teaches around Boston.
