I really like this little chapbook of poems accompanied by the poet/artist's charming drawings of the town of Frederiksted located on the west side of the island of St. Croix. Poems include Downtown, Peanuts, The Chance Book, Caught, Armor, The School Uniform, Cruzan Ice Cream. Country Woman, Dear Detroit, The Bees Are Drunk, Quick Sugar Harvest, Funeral In Frederiksted, In the Lutheran Church, and Dogs.The booklet is clean and nice other than rusting to the staples. It measures 6"x9-1/4" and has 32 pages, one of which contain these lines "Danger fills the dooryard and I cannot leave the house. The Genip tree holds me captive for it is thick with blossoms and all the bees are drunk."
