By Pamela August Russell

Omit Shakespeare. Don’t anticipate Donne. Shelley and Keats: banished! And there’s completely no poet laureate from the golden or the other age. So fawning PhDs in love with little-understood verses via long-dead writers may still cross in other places. this is often poetry for the remainder of us—bad poetry! Pamela Russell’s unexalted (but completely hysterical) poems mock, chide, accuse, tease, funny story, undermine, aspect, and chuckle on the global round us—and at whatever that takes itself too heavily. Her non-canonical oeuvre comprises: Tea for 2 (A Tragedy); Nietzsche And The Ice-Cream Truck; Capitalism Can Fall in contrast to I Fell For You; Inappropriately Touched via An Angel; Love is sort of a rest room Bowl; and plenty of extra. Who knew undesirable poetry may be so stable!
