Honest reviews are hard to write. Writing this one was like crawling through a series of increasingly smaller eyes in increasingly smaller needles. But I got to the end. The short version: Check out Spork’s Chapbook series because it takes the idea of a series seriously. The long version : the long version.

Maybe next time I’ll just record a video of my facial expressions as I read the book.  Or maybe it’s review break time?

Thanks to Ryan C for making the pictures look presentable.

It is long so I don’t know if any one will actually “read” it. But I hope so.

    No no not break time. Post that video to youtube. It could be a whole series. “Poetry reaction videos” Boy would I watch that.

  2. Ha! I would really like it if the internet did have a home address. And I guess this is all pointing to the fact that I should get an iWhatever that does all this shit in one.
