Campbell McGrath s Nouns Verbs New and Selected Poems is a wild mischievous read that continually uestions and checks a reader s responses Just when you re thinking that he s a little too self consciously modernist he will startle you with lines with a formal elegance that seems from another time The section of new poems that opens the collection includes Four Love Poems the third of which closes with this coupletCome I ll shed this common cloth you slip your silken gown Let moonlight be our mantle and ecstasy our crownThe closing stanza of the fourth of those love poems combines New

always in the scrap heap of my heartThe remainder of the collection reprints poems selected from eight of McGrath s 10 previous books As he announces in a preface to the book characteristically
