ILLEGIBLE ADDRESS is the third book of poetry by celebrated Brooklyn poet Denver Butson, whose work has been praised by W.S. Merwin, Billy Collins, Agha Shahid Ali, Jim Harrison, Thom Gunn, and Edmund White, among others. In poems that attempt to argue with smoke, Butson merges real and imagined street scenes, true and possibly false memories, earnest and playful love pleas, executing a rich poetic investigation of loss and redemption. Of ILLEGIBLE ADDRESS, Tomaz Salamun writes: Denver Butson sings the paradise he has lost, the, skin, the air, the views, the bruises-everything he has lost, or so he says. But he hasnt lost- he has gained, and the reader wants to be there, at the exact lost spot.its like coming home for me.
