Elvis Presley's Hips and Mick Jagger's Lips is Rock and Roll in New Poetry Book
The poems cover a range of subjects related to music, organized into three sections: "The Honey Thing," (relationships); "Mood Alteration," (substance abuse and shifts in emotion); and "Write a Song About It," (the music business and its relationship to other aspects of life). Each poem departs in its own unique ways from rock and roll, its lyrics, and its history.
