Poetry. These poems are steam punk on steroids. They're plutoniumpowered and neon-lit. These poems describe the world as it should be, as we want it to be, as we fear it will be, as it is every morning between 3:00 and 5:00 when our dreams are invaded by Godzilla, Tarzan, Wonder Woman, King Kong, Sinatra. If ATTACK OF THE FIFTY-FOOT CENTERFOLD were a holiday, it'd be Hallowe'en for grown-ups, Christmas for space aliens, and the Fourth of July for everybody, because each of these poems is a little present, and like the best presents, they don't just please us—they set us free.
