Poetry as lyrics for a politicized year. Attack poems, if you prefer, sparing no one and approaching reggae. Irony works well with syncopation after all. Indeed a music CD is in progress. Meanwhile, these poems of the moment are yours to enjoy, with a sneer or a smile. “The positivity of the author’s advice to the president is worth the price of admission though.” Robinson Joyce, publisher/critic

Elihu Blotnick won the Poetry-in-Transit contest years ago in San Francisco, after releasing a small enduring book of poems (Russian Hill, storm year), and won praise from the NYTimes for another book of imagery and poems (Saltwater Flats): "Powerful, and very personal, images of contemporary America." Blotnick's voice, trained in the NYU Drama Department, offers many moments of interpretive dimension to his readings of his books.
