MAD FOR NEWYORKTOWN: Dark Verse and Light - 87 PP.: Straw House Press, 2000
Like the city it uses as a point of departure, this volume of performance poetry bristles with voices, swagger, food, compassion, laughter, pain and, above all, attitude. It revels in a multiplicity of forms: from sonnets and odes to blank and free verse; from haiku to comic drama; from a bitter tirade on the Gulf War to a Victorian trifle in the tradition of high nonsense.
