David Kirby’s Talking About the Movies with Jesus: Poems was published in 2011 by LSU Press. I have to admit, it was the publisher who pulled me into buying the book, staying true to the alma mater and all. (Actually, LSU Press publishes a lot of good poetry, and other kinds of works, too; it and the Southern Review have a rather long and distinguished history at LSU.)
But this book of poems is unusual. Kind of wild, in fact. The poems range all over the place. And I was impressed enough to write a review that imitated the poetic style Kirby uses.
So please see my post today at Tweetspeak Poetry. You’ve heard of performance art? Think of this as performance review.
