Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Love. Work. Death. Complaints. It's the human condition. Whether you wrestle with it, bear it aloft, taste a little schmeck of it on your tongue or pass it along to some other unfortunate, you can't hope to fathom where you came upon it or whether there's a returns policy. Some say poetry is pulled unknowingly out of us, like birdsong. These people are annoying, seeing mystery for mystery's sake. Criticism is pulled unknowingly out of us like birdsong. Small talk is. Sleeptalk is. The first attempt at a phone message is. Poetry takes graft, craft and chisel-work. Especially limericks. 'From its brilliant, sorrowful subversions to its irreverent, exuberant nonsense, the voice here is gorgeously idiosyncratic. A cavorting, satirical imagination hits levels of comedic joy that stand out from any crowd.' -Emma Neale 'Such brio, such zip!' -Steve Braunias

Love. Work. Death. Complaints. It's the human condition. Whether you wrestle with it, bear it aloft, taste a little schmeck of it on your tongue or pass it along to some other unfortunate, you can't hope to fathom where you came upon it or whether there's a returns policy.
