Get ready to appreciate the ordinary and consider the profound in this dazzling collection of poems.

In the title poem, the narrator pays homage to the French horn, writing, in part:

The mellow mouth of my French horn
is worth all the jade or silver
or the superficial birthright
of an old family of scholars
that I'd trade for Scottish whiskey
and the junk I learned in college.

While a portion of the poem "Dollar Rose" reads:

Won't you buy a dollar rose, sir,
for your sweetheart or your wife?
For such a thing of beauty
it's a very special price.

Whether you are looking for the melancholy, the inspirational or simply the offbeat, you will surely enjoy the poetry in "I Was a College Dropout: The French Horn Was My Mistress."
