New poems by the author of Lovely, Raspberry alternate between deadpan and slapstick in their madcap depictions of human foibles.
“The poems in Glitter Bomb pull no punches: irreverent, devastating, even nasty at times, they capture the present moment in all its absurdity and hyper-reality. ‘Lampwise by altarlight’ (pace Dylan Thomas), Aaron Belz keep his eye on the object: often hilarious, he is also wise.”
“[Belz’s] approach resembles the New York School’s lighter side, where Ashbery’s use of Popeye in a poem evokes pop art and O’hara’s conversational tone disarms the reader to open him up for heavier material that follows.”
—Jason Labbe, Boston Review
Aaron Belz is also the author of The Bird Hoverer and Lovely, Raspberry.
