Sometimes, you read an entire book and it is one sentence that makes the entire book. Not that I’m saying the other contents in Jim Dine’s DIARY OF A NON-DEFLECTOR: SELECTED POEMS are not worthwhile reading. But for me, reading just this one line from its first poem made the whole book engagement more than worthwhile — I adore this line from its title poem, this truth:

“My trust in you, Beauty, is real.”
