In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Once I told someone
he should call his poem that
but I don’t know how
it turned out.
You could say Good
magazine or There’s a celebrity
on the fire escape
behind you,
and enough people
would still want to hear
the part about fire. I have
one enemy
but we don’t know it yet.
When we do we will meet up
at the balloon show
with a box of pins.

Mark Bibbins  

Mark Bibbins’s third book of poems, They Don’t Kill You Because They’re Hungry, They Kill You Because They’re Full , will be published by Copper Canyon Press in 2014.
