Poetry. This new collection of brief conceptual poems strives to demonstrate Jacques Roubaud's axiom whereby "poetry says what it says by saying it." Openly self-referential and stylistically sincere, they eschew aesthetic subterfuge in favor of direct, manifest expression. In their utter plainness, these self-evident poems aspire to a "writing degree sub-zero."
