Inside/Out, as the title suggests, does exactly what poetry should do: examines that long history of fear, temptation, longing, joy, loss and exaltation that resides deep inside the poet, and in all of us, and brings it through the poem into the light, into the clean, fresh air. Sometimes confessional, sometimes revelatory, sometimes nostalgic, other times prophetic, these poems are the myths, legends, soul and flesh vital to life, marked for eternity.
