Here are meditations on relationships, work, family life, and, of course, jazz: I love the smoky libidinal murmur / of a jazz crowd . . . / I like to slouch back / with that Ill-be-here-awhile tilt. Pleasure is abundant in these poems: music, wine, love, and language are, for Matthews, the necessary consolations for lifes suffering.Full of as much wisdom and song as heartbreak and loss, Search Party will bring a wider reading audience to this poet of experience and his benedictions of everyday life.
