Poetry. ONE-LINERS by Vincent Katz advances a classic mode of social discourse (not to mention critique). Molière would dig it! as would Kenneth Koch who depicts Katz as "an expert guide to pleasure." This is Vincent Katz's new collection of short poems—some literally one line (one is one word), others slightly longer and in various configurations, tonalities and intonations. A chorus, with properties ancient and modern, speaks throughout, and even the typography matters here.
The author of SOUTHNESS (Lunar Chandelier Press, 2016), SWIMMING HOME (Nightboat Books, 2015) and The Complete Elegies of Sextus Propertius (Princeton University Press, 2004), Vincent Katz is also the editor of Black Mountain College: Experiment in Art (MIT Press, 2002; reprinted 2013), and he is the curator of the "Readings in Contemporary Poetry" series at Dia Chelsea.
