Jessy Randall’s poems are smart, funny, weird, and friendly. She writes about robots, love, friendship, video games, Muppets, motherhood, Pippi Longstocking, and the peculiar seductiveness of old Fisher Price wooden people on Ebay. She’s partial to found poems, prose poems, and short poemsbite-sized mouthfuls of surprising lyricism. Sometimes sexy, often hilarious, strange and yet familiar, the poems in Injecting Dreams into Cows will leave you “gasping with delight and deliciousness.”
