Posted by fogglethorpe on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 (15:15:54)

Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, July 12, 2014 (00:23:39)

Yet in the opening lines of Toby Martinez de las Rivas’s remarkable first collection, Terror, we find ampersands working in the service of a lucid and spontaneous lyricismLink!

Then, in 2012, Octopus Books released Balloon Pop Outlaw Black, the first book of poetry by Patricia Lockwood, who has since been named the "Poet Laureate of Twitter" by HTML Giant and become one of the most widely read poets of her generation.Link!
