Best Thought, Worst Thought
The male genitals are worn externally as evolution is in the process of expelling them from the body. Another million years and they'll be stored in a drawer.
With Best Thought, Worst Thought, the award-winning Scottish poet Don Paterson has assembled a comic, intelligent, and cranky collection of brief truths and conjectures and, in the process, revitalizes the classic pith of the aphorism. "The form's only virtue is its brevity," Paterson writes; "at least the reader cannot seriously hold that it has wasted their time."
"Contentious, rude, hilarious, moving, and truthful. A book you'll dip into for the rest of your life." --Ian Rankin
