I could say "Leonard Michaels is an operationalist poet", but that would be inaccurate. I will say that every sentence he writes seems to have as much thought devoted to it as most authors invest in an entire short story. Even then, I'm redundant. I can try to write like Leonard Michaels, but I only sound pretentious. I don't know how he writes such incredible flash fiction, and I can only understand what's going on in the story "Hello, Jack" by a slowly growing percentage. He demonstrates emotional games everytime with such a reality that most of these stories must have been taken directly from his own life.

So, fuck Woody Allen; Leonard Michaels, baby. ( )
