from Ugly Duckling Presse (Brooklyn)

Dorothea Lasky's Poetry Is Not a Project is a heartening little essay for recovering mfa students and exhausted poetry veterans alike. Whatever brand of po-biz bruise marks your particular heart, you'll be glad to read that "real poetry," as Lasky sees it, is "a party from which you may never return home." Complete with Sarah Glidden's illustrations of wistful looking youths lounging on logs or eating ferally from animal carcasses, this pamphlet is a call for poets to stop conceiving and start making love. -Joseph Collins
