The Art of Forgetting: new poems
Sheep Meadow Press, 2016
FROM: The Art of Forgetting
The Art of Forgetting, like the The Art of War, provides a means of practicing “forgetting as healing,” it redefines the archive(s) and presents the End as a gate to action.
“This poetry punk’s supreme corruption is The Art of Forgetting. Like genial Borges, Codrescu is unforgettable. Horror of Codrescu is he is fun. Not serious like Putin who kills for fun. Andrei is a word tsar and wonder smith making crooked beauty. Banish him to an African game park. The giraffes will play polo, hippos rock, and poachers sing Bach in Sunday school.” — Willis Barnstone
