Description: Now in paperback, an audacious book of poems combining comic awareness and sensuous excitement -- both Koch trademarks. Here is an excerpt from Koch's exuberant Straits masterpiece, a four-part contemporary pastoral entitled "The Seasons". Following is a taste of "Summer":

. . . Here hot dogs sizzle at the curb, there flash

From windows rays of sunlight that bedazzle

The eyes of those who buy them and begin

To take a bite of before the change is given

For the five dollar bill they have extended

To the frankfurter salesman, smiling man

in workaday blue apron with two hands

That rapidly can shuffle sauerkraut

Between two halves of bun and with his spoon

Or ladle slap the mustard on, present

The finished hot dogs to the waiting friends

Ere they were conscious he had yet begun . . .
