Poems (Behrle/Moten)

Poems (Behrle/Moten)

Description

Poetry. Published to coincide with the poets' reading at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in February 2002, the back-to-back chapbook presents exciting work from two remarkable young poets. Fred Moten's poems spark with flavor, fierce downward twists of vibe and jive. His pieces unite personal and the projective into a unique, irresistible lilt that packs quiet punch. Jim Behrle's repetition and scattered imagery creates chain reactions on the page. Boston looms large as backdrop and inheritance, and in Behrle's poems connections are made from sliced-up language and dropped-off metaphor.Together in this chapbook, these poets claim their own space and their work is amplified by the presence of the other.
