Scouring Books: Hoodlum Birds

Hoodlum Birds
by Eugene Gloria

originally published in 2006

This is a collection of poetry, which describes itself and poet Gloria on the back cover as exploring an interest "with the common man's search for connection to the self and to the world," which is what I've tried to do with my own poetry, and so coming across this book was just one of those fortuitous occasions I couldn't pass up. Poetry holds such a tenuous grip in the modern world it's always nice to find that it can hold personal relevance, that there are thinkers out there sharing the same impulses.
