Poetry. "CHOPSTICK NUMBERS is a Dionysian vision of a young gay man's coming-out process. The descent into hell and often into humilation is there as he, 'a nice white Catholic fat man,' falls in love and develops a fascination for slim beautiful Asian men and hangs out at an Asian gay disco club. Like Orpheus, he must make the journey to hell to try to bring back what he loves"-Diane Wakoski. "A daily world and its amiably accompanying person make it all for real here -- with deft and accurate surmise. Just think about how many times you've thought of something -- and never said a word! Not so this impressive poet, who keeps it all moving -- period"--Robert Creeley.
