A new collection that oscillates between erudition and slapstick, from Virgil and Dante to a man who juggles his eyeballs.

 

The poems of I Could Have Been More Wrong come out of nowhere to proclaim eccentric half-truths with deceptive simplicity. Declaring that the spirit of life is the spirit of play, Kevin McCaffrey delights in confronting the cacophonies of experience and trying to make them rhyme. These verses, mostly set in traditional forms, draw energy from the joy of singing out, almost spontaneously, about the sometimes quirkily ordinary vicissitudes of being.

 

Illustrations by Dana DuMont.

Kevin McCaffrey has published a novel, Nightmare Therapy, and a 2014 volume of poetry, Laughing Cult. His poems have appeared in Exquisite Corpse, the Trib Talk section of the Texas Tribune, and Writer’s Almanac, all of which became defunct not long after his work appeared. He lives in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
