Not One, But a Lovely Two!

Brandi Homan reviews I’M THE MAN WHO LOVES YOU in The Cutbank Review today (an excerpt): Even though King does something that there should be more of in contemporary poetry—addresses the sociopolitical aspects of life in the 21st century head on—I’m The Man Who Loves You accomplishes much more. It is disjointed, beautifully grotesque, and…

Daisy Fried’s Poetry Exercises

Daisy Fried on Poetry: * I’ve never found an explanation for why poetry, apparently alone among the art forms, is asked to do more than be itself. * But poetry’s the High Art which is also democratic: inexpensive, portable, reproducible, quickly consumed (except for epic and very difficult poetry), requiring only literacy to participate.

Weekend Tips

First, check out Linh Dinh’s “Pick Up Lines” video-poem above for obvious reasons. I’m a fan of the man and his poetry too. I was torn between posting this and another called, “The Mind’s G-Spot“. Dinh’s got his finger on the pulse. At least one of them … p.s. I love the “…lather you with…
