Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Thirty years ago, when Dylan told us, 'the pump don't work 'cause the vandals took the handle,' who could know they'd be reconstellated here, with all their sweet weirdness and fierce wisdom, in Alan Michael Parker's remarkable and brilliant new collection of poems-- David St. John. In this book of tresspass and insubordination, Alan Michael Parker pillages all the tints and tones of diction on his way to an outrageous, courageous new poetics ... Rather than minding their manners, his poems unhinge asthetic decorum. They exist in the synapse and spark between word and object, mind and world, where meaning takes shape. Turbulent and musical, profound and absurd, they gesture toward the universal waves of farewell-- Alice Fulton.

Synopsis:

Just for fun, the vandals toss monkey wrenches into the machinery of life, wreaking poetic havoc.

Synopsis:

Alan Michael Parker's Vandals back their 4 x 4 up to the door of Western Civilization and stomp "inoutinout-inoutinout" of these poems, looting at will. Parker tosses the poetics of Nash, Simic, Berryman, and Vasko Popa into the aesthetic blender, then hits the liquefy button to produce a collection of disturbing levity.
