Poetry. ECHO REGIME is the fourth book by Black Square Editons, edited by John Yau. John Olson's book of forty-one poems is embellished by rich word choices and an array of peculiar subject matters, ranging from musical instruments to interpersonal relationships.
I think truth is an arch/ resting solidly on a column
of experience. And then I think
that truth is the sadness of predication
And then I think
women like men with money
to emit light from their abdomen.
