Staff Reviews

Look at how adorable the cover of this book is! Doesn't the smiley face just make you want to read it? Inside, you'll find a great collection of playful and inventive poetry from one of NYC's best small presses. Steve Muhs offers a refreshing and unique voice that may not revolutionize contemporary poetry but certainly makes it 221 acres more fun.

-- Adam

— From Adam F. Staff Picks


Taking cues from conceptualism, flarf, and XXX, but beholden to none of them, Steve Muhs crafts poems that are surprisingly sharp and deceptively plain-spoken.

Praise For…

"[Muhs’s] poems are . . . jarring pieces with a mixture of ordinary images and profound ideas. He takes the big bang, the cycle of life, science, God, and Freud and tosses in whiskey and salt and drug dealers and policemen. This sacred/profane dialogue is funny and raw." —Lesley Dame, NewPages
