LOPLOP IN A RED CITY, by Kenneth Pobo. Forthcoming 2017. The poems in LOPLOP IN A RED CITY spring from artworks old and new, figurative to abstract, Vincent Van Gogh to Leonora Carrington to Max Ernst. Like those works, the poems in LOPLOP are agonized and idyllic, uneasily at home in the surreal, animated and complex. Kenneth Pobo’s work has appeared in Hawaii Review, The Fiddlehead, Mudfish, Indiana Review, Madison Review, Caesura, Eclectica and more. His collection Bend of Quiet won the 2014 Blue Light Press Book Award. He teaches creative writing at Widener University, Pennsylvania.
