I HAVE BEEN WARNED NOT TO WRITE ABOUT THIS: POETRY BY RON RIEKKI AVAILABLE NOW! Riekki’s new chapbook is ferocious and sharp. We study the Qur’an at Auburn where we’re led line by line through a parable of mirrors. Full of snippets from a typically deranged American day, these poems don’t shy away from the Great American Sickness as we stare at the walls, at the floor, at the ceiling aching impatiently in the waiting room of the VA hospital. Listen for your name.

“To ‘feel good enough to grace God with belief,’ is to appeal to Blake’s Muse: To see bloodshed where the comfy see bullion; to know that God commissions Bible verses, not bullets, and commiserates with poets, not plutocrats. Ron Riekki is that United States-Saami bard, who knows that ex-Prez Delirium Tremens is a ‘David Duke of Earl,’ and that a person, ‘killed in slow motion’ equals ‘an adult being born.’ Here’s biopsy—not autopsy.”
