Poems from Frederick Seidel's Evening Man

For its 2009 celebration of poetry month, FSG featured an exclusive giveaway of Frederick Seidel's Evening Man, a chapbook produced in a limited edition and signed by the poet. Although the chapbook never appeared in stores, the poems were also published in Seidel's collected Poems 1959-2009. Since we all love Seidel (a poet Jonathan Galassi calls "dazzling, memorable, scathing, uncomfortably honest, and monumentally tender"), we wanted to reprint a few of those poems from that limited edition chapbook. Below you'll find the title poem and two others.
