Ah, isn't this sweet? The gravestones must be upset that I might be
expecting a visitor from London and the not-so-staggering one must be upset
that I've stopped expecting anything.

This kind of poem sticks in your mind and can make reference to it when you
experience that whatever feeling it emotes in you. Berman has a knack for
linguistic painting--so artfully casual about the genius he drops. He
compacts so many references to a time, a place, a history, a geography and
it is all his own, but he invites us to have a look around. It is
difficult to find _Actual Air_ in bookstores, so whenever possible, you
should request it. I feel like another book of poems from him is long
passed due. I hope this isn't the last. McSweeney's quarterly chose this
poem and that, I believe, is the last poetry book I have seen his name
appear. This poem is definitely one of my favorites in this book. I can
read it over and over. I hope you equally enjoy it.
