“Rodney Koeneke’s quick-paced, hilarious, often vulgar juxtapositions are rude to understanding but courteous as a calling card to anyone who cares about the life of language.

Here it is! The most lyrical of flarfist writings! Koeneke makes these complex tunes in the inner ear of the disordered mind of the reader. If your mind is not disordered, these poems will help. Already there. Twisted in a beautiful way. Wondrous, even. Just the clamways poems alone justify this book's existence. But so much more awaits the reader...
