A Suitcase Full of Crows
by Carlos Reyes
"Quietly and steadily Carlos Reyes has been writing some of the finest poetry of his generation. A Suitcase Full of Crows is further demonstration of that fact and an opportunity for more readers to see the craft, wit, subtlety, and range of this truly remarkable poet."
--Vern Rutsala, 1995 Final Judge
