Corn-Pone 'Pinions, by David Mook

Reviewed by: 

Corn-Pone 'Pinions is a thoughtful collection of self-aware poems and essays with the added splendor of current political cartoons. Mook acknowledges his white privilege with an artful analogy in the essay, "Born on Third Base," and his poem, "Castleton University War Memorial," sheds its shadow on the grim reality of future conflicts. It's an intense and greatly fulfilling exploration of our modern society.
