The Makings of Happiness
Being has 'no unbearable lightness' here. The poems are fat (a recurring word) with memory, love, humor (don't miss the poem about poetry, 'Building an Outhouse'), the world (the poet's parents, wife, children, the goats, chickens, cats, frogs, fox). And there are many nourishing servings of sound and sense, all, as in the huge "The Fat of the Land,' a feast set against 'the noncaloric dark.' And yes, there are, during this picnic of a book, times when lightning strikes and the hair rises.
