Description


At the center of Tough Luck is a poem about the ill-fated I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis and its disastrous collapse, which killed 13 people and injured 145. The freighted, swiftly moving poems in Tough Luck crisscross the chasm between peril and safety as if between opposing riverbanks, revealing a frequently heart-stopping view of the muscled waters below. Marriage, family, home--all come crashing down, but Todd Boss rebuilds with his trademark musicality and "a reverent gusto for representing the tactile aspects of human life" (Tony Hoagland).

From "In the End a Gardener"

is what we want in our corner of paradise. Someone aler to the slant of one hou of afternoon sunlight or other who knows what to plant there knows what will thrive
