Poetry. LUB LUFFLY from Del Ray Cross delightfully blends contemporary interpretations of the lyric and sonnet with humorous list poems. The closing poem, "i shd go through this thing & take out snippets: "a concentrated and heightened / form of language. can't i just / sit here and count butterflies? / my cellphone has no reception. / this leads to a greater / construction of narrative / character development cohe / sion. someone will point out / how this is the finest poetry / i've ever eggtossed. i / would tell you something / about myself if I knew." Cross is also the author of CINEMA YOSEMITE, available from SPD. He edits the online magazine Shampoo.
Del Ray Cross lives in San Francisco, edits SHAMPOO, and has a new book out by Pressed Wafer called Lub Luffly. Author City: San Francisco, CA USA
