Carlson, ClaudiaTHE ELEPHANT HOUSEMarsh Hawk PressPoetry. "Claudia Carlson's poems are going places: breakfast with Blake, lunch with Goya, then a modeling session with Picasso and a night at Hotel Blythe, where the bedspreads are stiffer than road kill. Carlson's poems combine wit and form with a painter's eye for detail (boyblue hairbrush, origami trousers, spoons in velvet beds)"--Meg Kearney. "Surprise after surprise waits within Claudia Carlson's first volume. There's fresh, astonishing poetry on every page; powerful, playful and inventive. Inside THE ELEPHANT HOUSE is a wild and touching world, and you'll be eager to explore every corner"--Kate Light.
