DescriptionPoetry. 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."
