O, What a Luxury
O, What a Luxury by Garrison Keillor

O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound collects verse written by Garrison Keillor, most of it for performance on A Prairie Home Companion. These poems are about places — Kansas, Sunset Boulevard, Seattle ("everything is uphill in Seattle"), Minnesota, Manhattan ("If the Oyster Bar is fresh out of oysters/ We'll take the subway up to the Cloisters") — fatherhood ("That old man in the garage once let loose a great barrage"), and odes to Mozart, onion soup, plumbers, the importance of honking your own horn, and the Republican lady from Knoxville who bought her brassieres by the boxful.
