Poetry. "HELLO HELICOPTER. Or hello helikos? As Robert Smithson tells us of his Spiral Jetty film, not so distantly from Kyle Schlesinger's poetics: 'For my film (a film is a spiral made up of frames) I would have myself filmed from a helicopter (from the Greek helix, helikos meaning spiral) directly overhead in order to get the scale in terms of erratic steps.'

i never had the inspiration to take a poetry class in college so i have no idea how to approach this book. maybe someday one of my smarty-pants friends (hint,hint lille, alison and jason) will walk me through this. in the meantime, it was a pleasure to be holding a published work by kyle since he's such an amazing person and deserves all kinds of success. for those of you who know him and want to get him some money and support you can order this through amazon or
One of my favorite new books, I know it's a new favorite mostly because I keep picking it up again, thinking, "HOW did that line go again!?" The long sequence MANTLE (written with the extraordinary Thom Donovan) is something we need a FULL READING OF! FULL RECORDING OF! This book will never be allowed to be borrowed, ever, so don't ask! BUY YOUR OWN COPY DAMMIT! I! LOVE! THIS! BOOK OF POETRY!
