Something new from the former United States Poet Laureate and New York Times bestselling author: a collection of more than 125 "small poems," each a moment or emotion compressed down to its essence.

"Whenever I open a book of poems, I tend to flip through looking for the small ones. Just as I might have trust in an abstract expressionist painter if I knew he or she could draw a credible chicken, I trust poets who can go short." --Billy Collins

You can spot a Billy Collins poem immediately. The amiable voice, the light touch, the sudden turn at the end. In his own words, his poems "start in Kansas and end in Oz."

Now "America's favorite poet" (The Wall Street Journal) has found a new form for his unique poetic style: the small poem. Here Collins writes about his trademark themes of nature, animals, poetry, mortality, absurdity, and love--all in a handful of lines. Neither haiku nor limerick, the small poem pushes to an extreme poetry's famed power to condense emotional and conceptual meaning. Taken together the more than 125 new poems of Musical Tables show one of our greatest poets channeling his unique voice into a new phase of his luminous career.

Only my hand
is asleep,
but it's a start.
