    One thought on “Vivisection”

    1. Vivisection Eric WeinsteinI found Eric s blog accidentally and read it here and there His was the first in my newfound love of blogs by writers Being a writer means I write a lot, obviously But it also means I read a lot, and not just books I subscribe to at least a dozen blogs, plus about a dozen or so that don t have the option for a subscription Anyway, I digress Eric writes poetry and most of the poems in Vivisection have been published in other literary journals Vivisection was the winner [...]

    2. Loved the wren s beak lodged near the heart and the lovely conversation with the diatomaceous folk Heavens, I had to look up or pretend like I knew a lot of words and myth names oops on me Thank you, Josh, for the at the desk reading.

    3. A strong chapbook by an excellent poet I especially liked Field Notes, Open Heart Surgery, Panel on Borderland, and Donor.
