POEM ADDRESSING CONSPIRACY THEORISTS You're right to understand the underlying devious intentions of this poem. You are definitely on to something. You should really examine my other poems too (just google me) and notice the clues I have left behind. You might want to share what you find with others by starting a blog, informing the media, making videos, etc. I have said to my wife and others that I don't understand how few people notice the prophecy in my work. For reasons that are probably obvious to you, I don't want to directly address what I'm not openly addressing, except to say that, yes, I am addressing what you think I am. I know; it blows my mind too!

I read a review of Davis' first collection, Hitler's Mustache, in the online journal, The Dream People. It sounded appealing to me, but I forget about it. Until I met him during the AWP Conference in Denver this year. I was drunk and in a bar. I think we were in the bathroom. That sounds kind of sordid, but it wasn't. Anyway, he offered to send me a copy of his book, and I happily accepted. And not only did he send me Hitler's Mustache, but he also sent me this book. Now as far as Hitler's Mustache, unfortunately I had trouble getting into it and did not finish, although I will return to it eventually. While with Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!, I liked this book a great deal more. My favorite poetry book that I've read in years. I often have trouble liking contemporary poetry and my tastes are very specific. My difficulties are related to its experimental aesthetic and abstractness. I need to establish a connection with the poetry, and this needs to be done with some degree of lucidity on the poet's part. I'm currently an MFA student with a prose concentration in a school that is lacking in fiction classes, and have had to take a few poetry-esque courses to make up for this deficiency, and they have been pretty tough for me. But this book felt like a vacation from that. It breaks down poetry to its most basic form, breaking through the "code" and being extremely self-referential and telling the reader what they should be experiencing while reading each poem. Actually, the title of each poem addresses a specific kind of reader.
