Summary
"Byrds poems open a different door: Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene are spotted in downtown El Paso; a private detective goes south to Toluca to find a revolution in his heart; a sad-faced clown in Florsheim shoes lectures the poet on the mortality of his mother; and Dante and Virgil show up to explain the true meaning of North Dallas"--Publisher's website
