My Press Is Cooler Than Your "Press" Press
"Scurvy Is Gross"
I am waiting to find a vegetarian restaurant with this name. Does someone want to start one with me? No takers? This was actually the least gross image of scurvy I found, but it would be my logo since it's the best.
I'm reading Evan Commander's chapbook, "A Thing and its Ghost."
My review: "It will not give you scurvy. Yes it will. No, it won't."
Wait, that's not a review at all.
There are handfuls of good lines. They do not necessarily come back to back, but I guess that would be a tall order.
Some lines I did like:
"my daily care occupies itself"
"where I say cakewalk and the icing grows petals"
"I am best in Ohio in winter without you"
"I am getting dressed downtown. Wooden heels on wooden floors / in the way that Oscar Wilde is exactly like television."
And you should definitely read the poem, "Critique of the City as Family." Go, buy it from H_NGM_N B__KS. It's only 6 bucks for 36 pages. That's, like, a couple cents per page, or something.
