Description Flashes de Jennifer Firestone:

Reflections on the individual and community flash in this urban web of buildings, technology and news bits, where the "city" looms and the inhabitants submit. Bits and pieces of Abu Ghraib, the Iraq war and 9/11 will be recognized, along with 24/7 newscasters and U.S. political figures welded together as one gigantic talking head. Paranoid neighbors, fashion rags and Walmart also take the stage. A menacing yet cartoonish shark probes the waters, a projected sign of the times. Yet within this hyper-reality a desire weaves, searching for a place in which to land, "Unpoured like animals from the ark we became friendly/like old days, we offered each other liquid/put away green bills, undid our jackets/clustered." Jennifer Firestone is the author of 'Flashes' (Shearsman Books), 'Holiday' (Shearsman Books), 'Waves' (Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs), and 'from Flashes and snapshot' (Sona Books). Firestone co-edited (with Dana Teen Lomax) 'Letters To Poets: Conversations about Poetics, Politics and Community' (Saturnalia Books), a year-long experiment documenting letter exchanges between fourteen poet-pairs. Firestone's poems has been published in the following journals: Drunken Boat, How2, Dusie, 580 Split, Xcp: Cross Cultural Poetics, Poetry Salzburg Review, among others. She has work anthologized in 'Kindergarde: Avant-Garde Poems, Plays, Songs,
