A phrase that occurred to me in trying to articulate what made me uneasy about many of the poems in this book was stylized self effacement I feel that there is something dishonest about the way Halliday courts personae and the interpersonal he is never very solitary in these poems; he's always surrounded by people only so as to reveal the Narcissistic Everyman who happens to be preoccupied with the politics of the poetry world In the weakest pieces albeit perhaps the most characteristic I find a really abrasive bitterness that refuses to engage interpersonal relations as anything than a facade of narcissistic endeavors in which people come together only long enough to deflect any possibility for an authentic relation As satire this may be what he set out to demonstrate; but as poems that engage the art in a compelling way I find him sometimes wanting The first fifth of the book was spectacular and when he's FUNNY about egotism he's VERY funny but sometimes this smacks of having been around people he does not respect for a bit too long

I'd only read a few poems by Halliday before this collection but I loved them I was really looking forward to this collectionAt first I was in love His humor and humanity are so fully captured in his poems that it boggles the mind how someone can distill so much into a handful of words His story poems are nothing short of fantasticEven his playful work with his nonsense words and interesting wordplay are fun to readHowever as the collection progressed and I made it into the last 14 of it the poems started falling short becoming too abstract or inaccessible to someone like me And they probably are wonderful poems; they simply weren't for me and in the end felt like a bit of a letdown considering how much I enjoyed most of the rest of the collectionStill I will be tracking of his work down in the future

Jab Phoenix Poets SeriesThis Jab the world will never be the same Or at least a few hundred conversations here and there will be somewhat Jab Phoenix PDFEPUBaffected Roll over Death and tell Mutabilitie the new. Halliday is a terrific poet I love how the blurbs on the back range from less than flattering to curiously hostile And they're probably right to some degree Halliday is endlessly introspective and sometimes you get sore in the ribs from all the coy suggestive nudging Also these people are poets who trade professionally in being social trainwrecks
