you don't have what it takes to be my nemesis
CAConrad continues to prove that poetry not only remains a reasonable and hilarious response to drones, poetry nemeses, industrial meat, ant colonies and other concerns, it is supremely necessary. His blazingly original mission to re-acquaint the work of poetry with the world it occupies features soma(tic) exercises and the resulting poems, which guide the reader through wild, unorthodox activities in order to uncover and unleash more open creative possibilities and make possible a more empathetic and just world. This is poetry that refuses to be simply read, but demands to be lived.
until i get what i want: Ransom poems
by Lysette Simmons
Lysette Simmons imbues her cut-up technique with the intelligence and humor and pitch-perfect juxtaposition of a voice bombarded by modern, chaotic desires. Throughout these "Ransom Poems," what's held hostage is the line between poetry and visual art--the sensibilities of both are transgressed in ways that are both hilarious and cutting in their poignancy.
