About the Book

This is the seventh volume of poems in which Ernest Yates records his impressions of Philadelphia, his home town. In this volume Yates makes poems not only out of Philadelphia’s street scenes, but also out of the sounds of those streets and the moods they evoke. Understood in all the commotion, indeed part of its cacophony, are the sounds our own footsteps make as we zigzag through city streets.
