An excellent panel called "A Panel Of Excess" can now be read in Action Yes. Writers include Jed Rasula, Johannes Goransson, Lara Glenum, K. Silem Mohammad, and Anne Boyer. Points traverse from Bakhtin's notion of grotesquery and the female body, traditional language as wax museum, Dada and Finnish poetry, three point proclamations on the "poetic non act," "the Nostalgia of the Infinite is a painting by the Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico," Blanchot's idea of disaster as skeptical gaiety and "At what point do the parables of rapt compliance intersect with the rapturous parables of noncompliance?"

Also, roaring good poems by Paolo Javier, Danielle Pafunda, and a poet who I have not read--John Wilkinson.
