Poetry. Disaster and delight collide in this quick-witted collection, HOW TO FLIT. Distorted advertisements, headlines, and familiar expressions pepper the pages, as the poems endlessly calculate—"In fifty years the export market for tomorrow's revels imagine!" Maxims ("Consolation helps those in trouble, if speaker is trustworthy") are quickly converted into commodity ("(t-shirt idea)"), while basic needs are left unmet, bodies left untended.
