Poetry. In THE THORN all kinds of materials by David Larsen are combined and presented in the form of a first book of poetry. The resulting collection makes no disguise of its debt to Behind the State Capitol by John Wieners, the SELECTED WRITINGS OF CEDAR SIGO, and Friedrich Nietzsche's Ecce Homo, and is distinguished above all for its emotional strenuousness. Major themes include writing, divination, speech and shouting. Also featured are generous samples of the poet's handwriting, and wall drawings from his 2003 show with Marc Bell, Amy Lockhart, and Poorly Rendered editor Will Yackulic. THE THORN is designed to appeal to the reader on all levels but the sense of duty, and will be of special interest to the extremely sensitive.
