all night long the terrible heat when the winds run low at last the silent screams we take to bed turn on our cavernous & windy heads on instruments waiting for music cataracts of blood going through the quick stir in wrists the rest of our bodies all the wrecked music there -from the bentleys In the bentleys, Dennis Cooley, with his trademark energy and verve, has recreated the tensions and themes of Sinclair Ross's classic prairie novel As for Me and My House. Celebrating 'love in a dry land, ' Cooley, with his deft, playful command of language, and his typographic exuberance, demonstrates his mastery of the long prairie poem. Containing some of the finest writing of his career, the bentleys will take its place with Bloody Jack as a 'beJesus delight.'
