“Stephen Roxborough, combination sardonic intellectual, Lucille Ball and Peter Pan east of Eden, is one of the finest poets working today. His new collection exposes the bright, quirky eyes and ears of a visual artist with a mastery of words. A remarkable book. Look for him in the holding cell for the maximally aware.”
Bart Baxter MTV Poetry Slam Winner, Seattle Poet Populist
“In the form of postmodern Buddhist meditations or mantras, these poems are aboutsimple human happiness. Created out of a pop sensibility and in a pop modality, they’re fashioned to free minds and shuffle off some of the weight of contemporary life. They cheerfully bend and blend the clich?’s and methods of contemporary consumer culture, but send it in a fresh direction. The pleasures here are wise and simple.”
Jamie Reid poet, activist, publisher, co-founder of TISH
“Rox has a light touch while reaching deeply inside what makes the universe tick, gentle while grappling with the dead ends of Today. This book knocks on your door and wants tocome in and make you laugh and sigh and think.”
David Ossman author, actor, director, member of Firesign Theater
“Lounging on the surface of domesticity, luminosity and drunken beauty, “This Wonderful Perpetual Beautiful, serves as a guidebook through life, language and the pursuit of ecstasis. Everyday life transformed through a lexicon steeped in the elegance of cascading desire, where a vibrating present is continually re-invented.”
Adeena Karasick poet, cultural theorist, performer, media artist
