Review of Trying to Help the Elephant Man Dance by Tim Suermondt

Some people dance through life changing everything and everybody they touch for the better. They imagine goodness and a wonder-filled life that might someday be; then they try to make it happen. Unfortunately, very few poets count themselves among this happy hopeful group; most versifiers seem to prefer the harrowing reality of the coffin lid. Tim Suermondt differs greatly from those other poets—the morose ones, that is—and, besides, he sings, mimics Cary Grant and understands the religious experience of a well-made grilled cheese sandwich.  For more of my review go here:  http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2014/10/trying-to-help-elephant-man-dance-by.html
