"This gloriously bellowed lyrical and linguistic chaos, this "mess of crossed wires and mixed seagulls," willmake your status quo ache, your perceptions implode,your horizons widen and shatter. Robbie Q. writes ustoward a primal need, the need to go absolutely insanewith the possibilities of noun, verb and participles ofthe dangled variety. This is not spoken word on thepage... this is spoken scream headed directly for thatcorner of your head you try to hide."+ PATRICIA SMITH, AUTHOR OF BLOOD

Editorial Reviews

In Spiking the Sucker Punch, Robbie Q. Telfer rocks out a bestiary of anticpoetics all his own. In his open and generous hands, speech acts zoom in andout of our collective desire to live and love. You will feel alive again reading it. -Daniel Nester, "How to Be Inappropriate”
