Petroleum Hat by Drew Gardner

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Poetry. Flarf. "PETROLEUM HAT is natural language for a country at war. Unlike the old model of protest poetry, Drew Gardner isn't interested in earnest appeals to reason and compassion. He'll match the political spectacle absurdity for absurdity--and in the case of the funny and chilling `Chicks Dig War,' I'm struck by how thoroughly he understands the logic of our times. Lazy Darwinian accounts of ourselves as celebrated in the New York Times Science and Business sections are satirized in tones borrowed and blended from sitcoms and textbooks"--Ange Mlinko.
