    DESCRIPTION

    Christodoulos Makris’ second full collection, blends painstaking poetic craft with the accidental hazards of found text and overheard sample. As challenging as it is accessible, these poems comment wittily yet unsparingly on the cultural, economic and political textures of twenty-first century life. Its compositional methods are wide-ranging: among them are poems written with Oulipo-esque formal constraints, collage poems from found/appropriated text, emails presented as poems and a Twitter data widget poem. This list is not exhaustive and there are also many narrative poems, poems one would hesitate to call traditional. This focus on composition moves towards explaining the book’s title, its paradoxical concern with orchestrating multiple possibilities.
