about

"Over the years, Larry Schug has "spit out" 111 nail poems. His most recent book, Nails, is the rusty coffee can that holds them. The nails in these poems are staunchly, relentlessly physical-2 penny, 8 penny, horseshoe, railroad spikes, straight or bent, shiny or rusty, discarded or wedded to wood.
