Abstract:

"Howie Good's "Robots vs. Kung Fu" is a collection of dark and delightful prose poems that subvert the real. Good is a close observer of the infinitesimal and the infinite. Within these pages you will encounter the surreal bumping up against the ordinary: honey-haired frauleins in Nazi bling vs the clock; trees on fire vs anti-crazy pills; globes crushed by tractors; beasts with seven heads vs sad little funerals in the rain, nagging black flies vs shopping, an angel with brilliant black wings vs school cafeterias. There's no denying there's some dark matter here: "What's been called my heart serves also as a wine glass, a highway, a urinal, a grave." It would be ham-handed to offer up a general statement about the humour, sadness and absurdity in everyday life, at this point." -- Publisher's website
