In Easy, Flint speaks of gratitude for whatever is good, true, and simple, though one suspects such gratitude is not simply or easily acquired. There is a gentleness, if not always in the subjects of these poems then in their telling, and in their reception. Flints fluid penetration of diverse people and matters - manual laborers, the next-door neighbor teaching his son to ride a bike, Allen Tate, cooking, gardening, marriage, popular culture, the link/rivalry between laughter and sex, poetry itself - does not descend to the mysterious, difficult, or esoteric- people and life, pure and simple, yield bald-faced truths and exquisite riches of insight enough.
