Best Thing I’ve Heard This Week: SP CE, Pt. 2

10 Jul

Last autumn, SP CEbooks published Rachael Wolfe’s chapbook SauceIn a previous review of the collection, I wrote:

Wolfe’s collection contains eighteen short poems, each of which are titled “Sauce.” But Wolfe makes sure to note that the “very repetition of sauce makes it somewhat meaningless as a title. [Its] function is similar to that of an asterisk or a number or anything else used to separate parts.” To this extent, the chapbook can be read as a sequence of interrelated poems that speak to and against one another… [wherein] the individual poems work as a series of both absurd and witty non sequiturs, keeping readers off-balance through threadbare connections and associative leaps.

The poems, to my mind, are reminiscent of Berrigan’s The Sonnets in their associative leaps, disconnected logic, and the manner in which individual poems converse with one another throughout the entirety of the collection. During my recent visit to Nebraska, Wolfe read an excerpt from SAUCE in the lobby just outside of the SP CE studio in downtown Lincoln:

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But just imagine if

    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website
    could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Very good blog!
