Weeks ago, Noah E. Gordon gave me Nick Moudry's chapbook, _a poem a movie & a poem_. First of all it's a really well-made book (hand-stitched!), but also, and more important, the poems are brilliant! Here's a de-contextualized portion:
We don't need poems to tell us we
write too much. It is raining. That
our friends are far away or just in
the other room. If I want a pumpkin,
I will have a real pumpkin & not a poem about one.
We don't need poems to tell us how alone we are.
If you want more of this (and you probably should), contact:
