cento for love April 3, 2014: written for a performance with Dohee Lee and Simon Pettet on March 28, 2014 Poetry is not for the passive. It is, as Mayakovsky knew, at its very heart tendentious. Even the love poem agitates the beloved to fall in love with the poet. Like the first time I ever heard “Crazy in Love” is the only time I’ll ever understand. Once [...] by

My Education: The NY/SF Poetry Scene in the Aughts April 1, 2014: I miss New York and the poets there and I’ve dreamed (had actual dreams) about stroking through the double doors of the St. Mark’s Poetry Project to silent-movie applause—applause and davening, for Chrissake, as I dash up the aisle to the podium, bobbing in a Salton Sea of undivided attention, and the flaring tips of my Italian sports [...] by

Poet Anselm Berrigan & Painter Jonathan Allen Collaborate on LOADING August 21, 2013: Hear tell is LOADING, from Jonathan Allen and Anselm Berrigan! As we've been told, the collaborative project "[LOADING is] essentially taking that notion--stolen from the message we all see on our phones/computers when they are busy processing data--and extending it as a broader cultural/social metaphor." Berrigan wrote a new suite of poems [...] by

"We were interested in amassing a number of voices to attempt to illuminate this famously elusive poet’s various senses of musicality, nonsense, and also a strict refusal to fit into accustomed patterns of writing poetry," he writes in the introduction.

Coldfront Covers Berrigan’s Irrelevance February 5, 2013: Nick Sturm offers some notes on Anselm Berrigan's Notes From Irrelevance over at Coldfront today, writing that Berrigan's latest is "a 65-page stanza with lines between two and seven words in length, the result of which is a continual column of language." Continual columns of language—we love them! More from Sturm: Berrigan makes [...] by

At Lemon Hound: Over 30 Reviewers Discuss the Review/Reviewing/Negative Reviewing July 3, 2012: Our friend Sina Queyras has a pretty amazing resource up on her blog, Lemon Hound.

don’t call it classical April 14, 2011: Ahem. My literary-life motto for this year is "slightly less writing and much more reading," and so I almost said no to this return-to-blogging — but having now seen Anselm's amazing nonlinear take on writing with a newborn around I'm in the mood to believe anyone can do anything, as long as it's done in an enthusiastic and a nonlinear fashion.
