Spencer Selby
House of Before

105 pages
ISBN 0-937013-36-6


Hard choices web this space of unmetered probing. I like, especially, the way Spencer Selby navigates through this side of "before"--"with one window/ broken just enough/ for damage I can dream about." A pulsing insistence, desire to get what need makes meaning of.
--Charles Bernstein

"There's got to be a better way/ advancing against control." The unity of diversity. The dialectic which collects, engages, commits. Spencer Selby's House is made of many rooms, each unique to the architecture of its language, and the human voices which fill it. These poems don't suggest another "better way," they make it. Try living here for a while.
--Craig Watson
