McIntosh, SandyForty-Nine Guaranteed Ways to Escape DeathMarsh Hawk PressPoetry. "McIntosh spins a tantalizing web of tales-unlikely encounters with the famous; musical instruments invented not to be easily played, but rather to be beautiful objects themselves; and mega-lists, one of which is the sublime title poem. Constantly inventive, his poems are meta in their metamorphosis-one prose poem even becomes a review of his last book. He mythologizes terrorist threats and re-imagines Superman, zooming into Metropolis to scoop up Poetry and save it from the villains, Boredom and Pretense"-Denise Duhamel.
