What are are holding right now in your hands is a book. Not a telephone reciever, which is how most of the poems in this collection were first transmitted...There are plenty of examples of this spreading of one art form or another through popular mediums. There are all those wonderful Russian Constructivist posters, Dr. Alphabet's public poetry gatherings on football fields, Dada caberet antics, and various forms of street theatr...Essentially what all of these movements were trying to do was expand the playing field called "art".

I assumed this was on the S&M side when I bought it, which is why I picked it up. It still has interesting stuff in it, just not what I thought it was. ( )

A very nice collection of poems by various authors that I thoroughly enjoyed. ( )

While some of these stand out, there are others that you feel could have used a bit more time. Still, this is an original anthology with quite a bit of work that will leave you thoughtful and wanting more. As a whole, I'd recommend it. The work here is thoughtful and engaging as a whole, and the poems are not so risque or graphic as the title suggests, by a long shot, which serves as reassurance or warning as your tastes might go.
