Finders Keepers: Infomercials

Are you a fan of the 1980s? Do you love hair sprayed bangs, acid washed jeans and rewinding VHS tapes? Do you remember writing research papers on the tiny green screen of your mom’s word processor? What about the time you puked all over yourself in fifth grade math?


Finders Keepers: Beneath the Daily Noise

Found Poetry Review’s Book Reviews Editor Douglas Luman is a “volunteer poet” for the month of October for Tupelo Press’ 30/30 Project. That means he is among a group of poets contributing 30 poems in 30 days to help raise funds (and readership) in support of the literary press.


Book Review: Seascape

Though it may be somewhat brash to refer to Seascape as a long poem, it certainly is a kind of long-form data-driven narrative poetry. In an age when many are conditioned to look at the “story” that data tells, it is not at all beyond claiming Bäcker’s transcription as such.
