Poem Of The Week: Bruce Cohen in The Missouri Review

Bruce Cohen’s poem “The World Haywire” is currently live on The Missouri Review‘s website as their poem of the week. About the poem:

Obviously, we are bombarded, inundated and, at times, overwhelmed by the influx of information, most of which has no bearing on our lives.  This poem is a sort of contemporary moment while flipping through a magazine, watching the tube, cruising the internet and looking out into my backyard, after a tree had fallen, after a nightmarish jet-delay return home.  The rapidity of information became the litany and music of the poem.  And, oh yes, a little self-confrontation thrown in for good measures.
