RABBIT EARS: TV POEMS is a poetic tribute to the medium that has influenced America's tastes, opinions, politics, language, and lifestyles: television. Within its pages, you'll read narrative poems, persona poems, poems that employ found text, formal poems, prose poems, haiku and senryu, and poems that incorporate non-poetic forms, like the interview and screenplay. Edited by Joel Allegretti, the anthology contains 129 poems by 130 nationally known and emerging poets including Billy Collins, Ellen Bass, Dorianne Laux, Aram Saroyan, Timothy Liu, Tony Hoagland, and Hal Sirowitz. The title, named for the pair of indoor TV antennae developed in the 1950s, comes courtesy of former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins. These poems explore a robust array of subjects: the history and early days of TV, sit-coms, children's programming, the news, horror and science fiction, detective shows, soap operas and romance, reality TV, and commercials, among others. The poems are funny, poignant, witty, mysterious, and educational. In short, the poems are much like TV itself.

Allegretti's poetry has appeared in The New York Quarterly, Barrow Street, Smartish Pace, PANK and many other national journals, as well as in journals published in Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium and India. He has published his fiction in The MacGuffin, The Adroit Journal and The Nassau Review, among other literary journals. His performance texts and theater pieces have been staged at La MaMa Experimental Theater, Medicine Show Theater, the Cornelia Street Cafe and SideWalk Cafe, all in New York. He wrote the texts for three song cycles by Frank Ezra Levy, whose work is released on Naxos American Classics. Allegretti is a member of ASCAP.
