it was amazing
bookshelves: pavement-saw-press-books, poetry-chaps
Recommended for: Humans
Read in January, 2008

This collection is mostly serial prose poems (8 to 10 pieces in length) written in gramatically correct bonifide post new sentence sentences without funny animals or inanimate objects that talk like most American poeteasters have inflicted upon us through a thin vaneer of unsubstantiated surrealism. I am going to ruin the ending, here is the last poem.

An Acoustic Experience

Inoculate with ones & zeros
the sound of the human voice

You have a computer’s unrequited compassion
& I, the outline of an ostrich
torn in half, tacked to a pixilated heart

The perfect companion’s a photograph of sand

Unexpanding, elegant universe
something something something the end

can be acquired for $9 pp via paypal to info@pavementsaw.org
