Standards of Sadiddy

Standards of Sadiddy
  • Title: Standards of Sadiddy
  • Authors: Jonathan Penton
  • Published Date: 2016-07-19
  • Description: A delightful read-as if Charles Olson's projective poetry were expressed in the graceful calligraphy of Chinese ideograms. -Yuriy Tarnawsky, author of The Placebo Effect Trilogy, Modus Tollens, and others Jonathan Penton's Standards of Sadiddy tells it like it is of lessons learned. "My body claims i'm filled with tiny answers. The poetry is written with a gentleness that grabs onto your being, the ying and yang. Darling, we have learned/of the wars within us/without us/we know that victory is something none can justly claim. Perfection is doomed in relationships, even though it is wanted, but it is fantasies my mind will reject." Penton's book will leave you reminiscing your own inner madness. -Gloria Mindock, author of Whiteness of Bone, Blood Soaked Dress, and others "This book is safer than my satin cords," Jonathan Penton tells readers of Standards of Sadiddy, a gritty collection that considers imagination, popular culture, and identity. And, yes, "hypnofetishporn." From "Fabio-streaked ceilings" to "the darkly plain," these poems wildly traverse realms literary and erotic, public and domestic. Jonathan Penton's book is a love letter to the weird and lonely and restless, every "lover flailing on the horizon." -Carolyn Hembree, author of Rigging a Chevy into a Time Machine and Other Ways to Escape a Plague and Skinny
