February 19 2009

Lucretius was a Roman poet and philosopher whose epic poem, 'On the Nature of Things,' postulated that soul and body were made of the same material. In Funkadelic's 'What is Soul?' poet and philosopher George Clinton riddled the following: 'What is Soul? … Soul is a ham hock in your cornflakes / What is soul? … Soul is the ring around your bathtub / What is soul? … Soul is a joint rolled in toilet paper / What is soul? … Soul is you.'

Eye Weekly marvels at The Laundromat Essay

By Brian Joseph Davis
Eye Weekly
November 26 2008

My panic whenever reviewing poetry can be explained with a story once told to an interviewer by Liz Fraser of the Cocteau Twins. For an unauthorized lyric sheet, the band’s Japanese label had transcribed her indecipherable singing into English lines like, 'Hit me with your airplane / I don’t mend no fence / Yeah, baby, I’m a mud dancer.' Poetry criticism’s failure, I’ve always thought, is that it runs at a similar interpretive deficit as Japanese music industry interns pitted against Scottish post-punks singing in doggerel.

Eye Weekly reviews Blert

By Brian Joseph Davis
Eye Weekly
September 1 7600

Canada's Jordan Scott does peculiar and funny things to language as well. Scott's poems and prose in Blert were, according to him, written to be as difficult as possible to read aloud. If you're expecting million-dollar-word workouts, note that Scott has dealt with a stutter since childhood so, for the author, a word as benign as 'mayonnaise' takes on a Herculean scale.
