""Can good poetry be written on demand? Matt Potter asked five poets to write poems on fifteen topics like ""Convenience Stores,"" ""Personal Grooming,"" and ""Public Transport."" The result was Versus, an attractively-designed anthology with many memorable poems like Howie Good's arresting 'To the Blue', Claudia Bierschenk's plaintive 'Old Women Blues', Ron Campbell's biting 'Operators',Carolyn Cordon's artful 'What Can I Do?' and JP Reese's scorching 'Ghosts.' Can good poetry be written on demand? The answer is ""Yes"" and 'Versus' is the proof.""
