Though band narratives generally follow a simple formula (e.g. unbridled sex, excessive drugs, trace elements of plot, etc.) this book is different. The Sanctity of Rhyme is a singular poetic vision that draws freely from the traditions of Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, B.H. Fairchild, Rimbaud, Anne Sexton, Jack Spicer and others, crafted with the cadence and manic ... more
