Work, Sleep, Work, Carry Wood

A program called Open World invites Russian poets to the states. This year they invited four really good ones. Of these four Andrei Sen Senkov is by far my favorite. From his weird visual poetry to his long sequences of fragments the work exhibits signs of a childish curiosity and presumptuousness. As soon as I have a bit more time I plan to translate some of his work. For now I leave you with this: John Ashbery, poet laureate of MTV.
