Poetry. "John Olson is writing the most outlandish, strange, and inventive prose poetry ever in the history of the prose poem. Olson's writing is so agitated with transformation that it can barely contain the skin of its own given language. It is a volcanic, fresh, and scalding rush."—Clayton Eshleman
