    September 13th, 2007 at 5:29 pm eI scanned ~12 samples..
    It’s rather fascinating…the narratives are usually more visible
    than pure language poetry, but the surreal effects and language
    jumps are really snappy. Even the life/historics have a
    certain blurr to them. And it spools out in that run-on style
    half the time for lots of speed. Their description is really
    apt….fo real! Your stuff is really buzzing along in that issue,
    facets sparking. A shade of the Ashbery-esque, more than
    usual, in your bobsled-kickoff start, then the flashes, and
    the Dali-esque visual (image-surreal?). Pretty cool.

    An epiphany:
    Many collections each have their own personality too. The pieces
    are part of the bigger saga. I see the ed. composing….Very nice, zingy.
