My Oakland by Charles Legere

My Oakland by Charles Legere. Deep Oakland Editions, 2009 (and ongoing), e-chapbook.

[Review culled from my introduction for Charlie @ last week's Holloway Reading.]

The problem is perspective
broken surfaces

“a plaster statue / of myself,"

gradations of represent

of place of people of numbers
within numbers of language

a Frankenstein’s demography
impossible poetry.
