Par Spencer Gordon. 2017
WARNING: "Cruise Missile Liberals" does not contain proper poems--that is, poems with proper politics, proper tightness, proper attention to sound… and shape; poems that are meek in all the right ways, culturally and aesthetically; poems that make musical brocades that are equal parts pedantic and overwrought. Instead, this debut poetry collection reeks of explosive contradiction. Incorporating invented lyrical content and found material, it presents the reader with pleasurable collisions and oppositions. It is of the here and now: digital, online, urban, urbane and ironic. These are poems of play, rant, irreverence and humour, a mash-up of ordinary lyrical anxiety with ambitious injections of the experimental--filled with cheek that, every once in a while, turns into a punch to the gut. 2017. Uniform title: Poems.
