Barnes & Noble:

From the publisher: “I Don’t Know Do You gives us 102 new ways to be brilliant in our failure. We also get love poems — to daytime fireworks, several feet of snow, and astonished frontiersmen. Montes’s poems unfold into unknowing, proving again and again that we can only underestimate our capacity for love and reinvention. ‘What I did just now was a trick / to get people to love each other / and eventually me. // It’s working even now.’ It is.”
