About this item
Poetry. In I CAN SMILE LIKE ERROL FLYNN Tito Titus interrogates life, aging, and death with a delicate blow torch. These poems adore the beauty of youth and memory; fluently articulate the melancholy and nostalgia delivered by loss; and, with irreverence and awe, dicker with Death. Words used by reviewers include wry, wistful, fierce, searing, ******, humor, regret, bravado, and longing. The book contains three sections: the diceyness of life without do-overs ("Can you hear me now?"); Titus's chaos-fueled youth ("The beasts within"); and, Death and mortality ("Swish of a horse's tail"). Lovely women, dead men, ******, saints, victims, flies, Richard Brautigan, Anne Carson, and wide pants—all that and more, idolized or cauterized by a poet's pen.
