All it would take by Marc Swan
All it would take is Marc Swan’s immensely readable fifth collection, spanning a life in words, influenced by the sense of freedom espoused by Kerouac, Corso, Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti and in the quiet, essential essence of Carver.
Not read, but experienced, Marc Swan’s poems encourage us to see the world – its dangers and beauty – and to share our journeys with those we love. These poems do what it takes to illuminate a richly lived and well-examined life.
