Exertions by Scott Glassman (2006)
Cy Gist Press
Cy Gist Press is edited by Mark Lamoureux. This is a string-bound chapbook.
The LANGUAGE in this collection is postmodernistic language to be sure but as a reader AND a publisher I often wonder if the use of "i" is the glue, the anchor word. I find it unnecessary to interject the "i" unless the poems are lifted directly from the author's diary. I doubt that's the case here but that feels like the result.
If you like his work, this is a collection for you!
