The Weigh-in by Winthrop Smith

Description

'The Weigh-In' offers a coverage of the underside of gay experience in America that recalls John Rechy and Michael Lassell. Using incantatory techniques borrowed from Gertrude Stein and contemporary minimalist music, Smith conveys the repetition-compulsion of promiscuity (see 'Monotomy'), which forms the basis of his special aesthetic. In these poems words are snapped in half like breadsticks and sentences enjambed between lines to fashion a jagged argot of Smith's very own, one well suited to portray anonymous lives bent on ecstasy at any cost, to whom he brings the protection of poetry.
