Heaven & Earth Holding Company

John Hodgen

Publication Year: 2010

“Heaven & Earth Holding Company contains a plentitude of delights. Like little stories told in the night, these poems are clear narratives crossed by mysterious shadows. And Hodgen’s tone occupies a singular place at the intersection of funky wit and true feeling.” —Billy Collins
