"I’m Just Happy To Be Here exudes life—an in-your-face vitality in which nothing seems fake. Though Cugini complains about the Occupy open mic in one piece, these poems at times resemble just that, amplifying whatever powerful mood happens to possess the poet at a given moment. With titles like “We’re About Whatever, Man,” the poems dance along, sometimes slowly and sadly, sometimes snidely or angrily, but always happy to be here, because that, after all, is so much better than the alternative."
Thank you WCP and thank you Eva, for getting it.

"my heart and
now is someone else
someplace pretty
different because of
the formal structure
of this poem and are
my thoughts more uniform
every moment
I’m living
I’m thinking
I’m gonna write about it"
