The poems in Im not going to lie to you arise from a place of inquiry into the nature of that which we call home and of the people whom we call loved.

Blouins poems pay tribute to perfectly made omelettes, tire tracks in snow, a wife dressing by the closet light, and a father, a pilot in World War II whose stories still hold their strength even as his grip fails. Punk rock, hitchhikers, Artie Shaw, bobblehead lobsters, bar room encounters with dead poets, guns and vodka all conspire to invoke a sense that there is a purpose to each of our days, hesitatingly strung together. Blouin knows that as we shuffle papers, as we turn day to day, we distract ourselves with minutiae, all of us afflicted with ineffable longings. These are poems that linger over the small details of a life, reminding us that in these small details wonder and awe might exist.
