Poetry. Well-known for his radical poetics and politics, Rod Smith's TOUCHÉ turns yet another Avant-Garde corner. Ranging from conceptual and flarf to high lyric and even confessional works the poems in TOUCHÉ toss the reader into the seemingly infinite possibilities Smith's style(s) inhabit. TOUCHÉ's repartee is both inventive and humorous, intense and open.
