About this item

Poetry. PRIMITIVE STATE is a book- length tour-de-force from one of contemporary poetry's strongest search-lights. Composed as an homage to the list poem as "a catalog of consciousness-beats," the result is a long poem peculiarly perfect for twitter. Written across the fall and winter of 2008-09 as a continuous arrangement of deadpan observations, a comic reboot of the poet's writing mind, and partial portrait of the poet's then one year-old daughter, PRIMITIVE STATE is a work simultaneously spontaneous and exact, at once open-ended and satisfyingly immediate.
