At HTML Giant, Blake Butler reviews Gordon Massman’s The Essential Numbers 1991-2008.
I’ve been reading this for a couple weeks now, a few poems at a time, because it is so brutally right there and fucked and ready to fuck your head, it needs the slow imbibe, the good one. Where so much ‘poetry’ can be yadda, these are words saying something hard and loud, and meaning it….
These are some unyielding monoliths of spit and tongue….
This is the kind of book you can’t ask for until you have it.
