So what do Whitman and I have in common? Apparently, we've slapped peeps across their faces! Or so the latest review of SILK EGG posits -- thank you, Mr. Zvi Sesling! -- over HERE at the Boston Area Poetry Scene.

Please do go over to check out that review -- after all, it's complimentary to Moi. Did you know I apparently employed in SILK EGG (and please note I never challenge anyone's response to my work) a technique similar to but more "creative and unique" than Rainer Maria Rilke's Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke (The Story of the Love and Death of Cornet Christoph Rilke)?

From Whitman to Rilke, People. Now. Please. Let this blog post result in just one -- JUST ONE, PEOPLE! -- sale of SILK EGG. Here's a hint: I discovered just the other day that SILK EGG's price on The Book Depository might be the lowest price available out there, in part because they ship free worldwide! That's right -- you Peeps in the Philippines or Finland or Vanuatu, Saint Pierre And Miquelon, or even Comoros: free shipping worldwide! Ye Americans, natch, can get with it, too!

Just one sale. For just one sale of a poet's book, I am cheerfully willing to be cheerfully shameless. Indeed, here are those who've engaged publicly to date with SILK EGG--don't you want to know why they go at times over the top, causing Moi to go over the top!!

Now, someone: bite! Geezus, it's exhausting selling a poet's book. EXHAUSTING!

Kerplunk & Crash!
