    One thought on “Click and Clone”

    1. I got the same feeling reading Elaine Equi's Click and Clone that I did reading Mairead Byrne's The Best of What's Left of Heaven, which is that poetry is everywhere--the building blocks of it, the materials, the physical stuff. Byrne's pattern poems pull all the items out of a room, break them and make them fit back together. Equi reads over people's shoulders on the subway. She sources The New York Post.

    2. There was definitely a reason this book found me. I have dog-eared so many pages! (That is a good thing, and something I rarely do!)

    3. A book to alter the tint of your world, to return to with the joy of knowing there is no true mundane, only an endless rotation of buttons we push for love of discovery.
