Description - Shiny Pencils at the Edge of Things by Dick Gallup
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.

He has taught at the St. Mark's Poetry Project, the Boulder Public Library, and the Naropa Institute. His work has been anthologized in Up Late; Out of This World; and The Best American Poetry 1997. Gallup lives in San Francisco.
