Like a blues song whose cadence hits us right where we are, the poems of Nevin Compton Trammell captivate us through simple rhyme and few words. Sensing that we are all recovering from something, Cream Soda Blues brings us face-to-face with our adult foibles and desires while tapping into the child somewhere still within us. With wit and passion, Nevin Compton Trammell captures the essence of our complex lives, the ardor of our human longings, and our wandering quest for meaning. This is poetry that even adults can learn by heart . . .
