"[Todd Boss] can make any rhyme feel like a concealed weapon." —Sherman Alexie

With poems about loss, home, marriage, and the inner music of our lives, Pitch is a series of variations on an overturned piano. By turns bright and dark like the keys on a keyboard, these poems demonstrate the range of one of contemporary poetry’s most musical poets, a master of internal rhyme.

from “Overtures on an Overturned Piano”
. . . our hi-beams
played
across the gleaming bed
of snowdrifted bramble
where it lay,
moaning chaotically . . .
