And If You Don't Go Crazy I'll Meet You Here Tomorrowby Filip Marinovich
"We are not stable where we stand. Whether by a tweet or a twit, pop-up or pop-out, podcast, feed, or alert, we are aware the earth is in flux, a constant of revolution. Just as innumerable permutations hang behind a thought, tune, or Internet search, the poems of And If You Don't Go Crazy I'll Meet You Here Tomorrow by Filip Marinovich take us into the conscience of the new-new-neoteric. From Belgrade to Manhattan, Kandahar to your local ashram, he is the nomad with his eye on our world. The poems bring us in through the poet's eye along the nerve to where neurons twist, twirl, bend, and fire by the disarray created in a memory. As chaos is the natural state of the universe, And If You Don't Go Crazy I'll Meet You Here Tomorrow illuminates and maps the reflective state in humanity." Ian Bodkin, Rain Taxi (Read the entire Rain Taxi review)
Synopses & Reviews
Filip Marinovich's second book spans the Otts, the outs, and many outposts. Travel with Filip and meet the phantoms of airplane chewing gum and beat on a drum with a Molotov cocktail.
"What's happening? What is happening to me? The poems of Filip Marinovich, that's what! This book makes me cry, then laugh, it's awful, it's fantastic! Joy is in the movement he says and there is an inexplicable physicality between each word! Have you been here? Ever visit such a place? In one sitting you will read it and want every book to possess such tangential magic! I'm stupid with love for the genius of Filip Marinovich!" Caconrad
"Full of smarts, which used to be called 'wisdom'. And here, now (thank goodness) takes on sharp shapes to disorient us to the depths." Richard Foreman
"I feel changed by Filip Marinovich tonight and if I heard him read this long poem tomorrow I’d feel changed again. He urges us all to make a mess, to stay foolishly alive across deaths and borders while splashing in a puddle of language. We get to do that? Yes! He proclaims, vehemently, author of such permissive verse, a dirty Dr. Seuss, endlessly capable of teaching us." Eileen Myles
