New Book from Blue & Yellow Dog Press: Richard Kostelanetz' FICT/IONS and This Sentence

This just out from Blue & Yellow Dog Press: FICT/IONS and This Sentence.
Two volumes of poetry in one priceless book by Richard Kostelanetz.
It is priceless but if I had to put a number on it that number is $15.
Visit Blue & Yellow Dog Book Shop or Better Homes Through Poems to purchase your copy.

Richard Kostelanetz is a name we hear over and over if we have ears on the internet. He has been published countless times in some of the best journals out there and he is still doing it. His language experiments have altered our perceptions as a culture by redefining our words, by examining the nature of poetry and language, which is always a form of poetry to him. These books add that something extra to his already respectable ouevre.

The Grammar of Mind by Keith Moul is available now from Blue & Yellow Dog Press Book Shop. Blue & Yellow Dog Press is also a proud new member of Better Homes Through Poems Collective. There you will find books published by nine or ten Independant Presses.

But back to The Grammar of Mind, a chap book by Keith Moul:

The terse yet potent verse paragraphs contained in Keith Moul's chap book, The Grammar of Mind, hold our most trusted & reasoned postmodern insight's feet to the fire, testing knowledge, wit, favor, an entire body of ecclectic bursts explode in the collective mind, shedding light. Somehow energizing the reader, each word is layed down like a concrete slab. If life is a book to be lived then "7/each day of life/taken straight/ administers shock treatment/to the mind" If this is hyperbole then it is also a no nonsense mirror held up with a sure and steady hand. A mirror in which points of order are clearly stated & numbered, as in "8/dust specks crowd into/the 60 watts of the mind."
