“Weatherhead’s Cats and Dogs features plain-spoken, tragicomic koans for the 21st century. Voiced by a solitary city-dweller, these poems borrow haiku’s small, startling observations, but with an eye for metropolitan life: its bus rides and apartment building rooftops. By turns graceful and artfully clumsy, Weatherhead’s lines find their way to an honesty I enjoy and admire. Perhaps his gift for understatement is contagious; I want to tap poetry readers on the shoulder and say Listen–this book–you might want to take it home when what I mean is Read this immediately.” –Heather Christle, author of What is Amazing
