Simultaneously elegant and goofy, the poems in Shiny Pencils at the Edge of Things depict the quiet moments of life with both sophisticated wit and a child's sense of wonder. Gallup's poems often begin with household objects, or a walk down the street, but his lines leap across continents and ideas with ease.
