About the Book

"In COME NOW, Rodger Gerberding reminds us of just how necessary the modernist's dogged desire to employ everything in the world: philosophies, myths, ideologies, art, snippets of conversation, jokes, the detritus of popular culture, to lyric effect has been for denizens of the so-called information age. These poems reflect a probing intellect and an emotional candor that position Gerberding as a poet who is utterly convinced by the urgent need for poetry in our contemporary world, and one who sets out to remind us of the beauty that is produced when a gifted writer practices what he believes."—Kwame Dawes
