Poetry. The poems in SAY SO are at once rigorously formal and wildly experimental. Human utterance--be it prayer or plea or pun or turn of phrase or epithet--is one of SAY SO's primary pistons; poetic tradition--rhyme, meter, form, rhetoric--is another; the beauty and betrayals of the body, or bodies--echoed in the beauty and betrayal of language itself--is a third. Together, these forces provide the pressure that makes SAY SO move and brings these poems to life.
