Poetry. As a poet and a musician, New York resident Drew Gardner is admirably obsessed with "the phrase." Separating each line in SUGAR PILL with regular units of blank space, Gardner's first book turns every line into a stanza unto itself, clearly intent upon establishing a rhythm and sequencing wholly unique to itself. Outside of its fascinating form, this collection intimately examines the consequences of the scientific and corporate leviathan, and its eerie moral order: "aren't you supposed to be out killing things?//like lemmings running up a cliff//missile silos implode in North Dakota//copping the absence."
