I travel in rusting burned-out sedans: A life inside poetry by Jim Bohen '69
Poems that dive, move, surprise. Lyrical laments. Love poems. Rants with bite. These are the phrases used to describe Jim Bohen's latest work and first book of poetry. Reclaim your own memories through his lens on the first day of school, singing the rock band blues, growing older, and grandparent-hood. Enjoy!
