Poetry. Winner of the 2007 Anhinga Prize for Poetry. "Engaged by contemporary American life at every level, from the down-and-out to the urban sublime, the poems in Kenneth Hart's UH OH TIME have at their core a sensitive, lonely individual who has a marvelous way with words. Whether he is conversing with a Russian lap dancer, writing an ode to the diner, or analyzing a mayfly's husk on a shower curtain, the poet shows a genuine affection for his subjects -- an affection embodied in language that is always rich, complex, and various. His own name says it all. This is a poet with heart"--Mark Jarman, judge.
