Tenth annual winner of the May Swenson Poetry Award, "Haywire "is a well-polished collection from a highly accomplished poet.nbsp; With humor, compassion, and an unflinching eye, Bilgere explores the human condition in accessible lines and a magician's way with language.nbsp; In images bright and dark, tangible and immanent, Bilgere brings us time after time to the inner reaches of a contemporary life. In subjects ranging from adolescent agony to the loss of parents to the comic pain of middle age, he finds no reason to turn away his gaze, and ultimately no reason not to define himself in joy "Haywire" was chosen for the Swenson Award by poet Edward Field, winner of numerous awards and a personal friend of the late May Swenson. Field describes the book this way. " This poet, you knew from his very first lines, didnrsquo; t fall for anything phony- his own language is irresistibly no-bullshit down to earth, even sassy."
