I CAN STILL SMILE LIKE ERROL FLYNN
"In I can still 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. It's wry, wistful, fierce, searing, erotic, humorous, regretful, brave, and lonely.
"The book contains three sections: the diceyness of life without do-overs (Can you hear me now?); Titus's chaotic family of origin (The beasts within); and, Death and mortality (Swish of a horse's tail). Lovely women, dead men, bastards, saints, victims, flies, Richard Brautigan, Anne Carson, and wide pants—all that and more, idolized or cauterized by a poet's pen."
