Poetry. Butt out, Dante. Move over, Milton. Piss off, Pound. Outta the way, Olson. Here comes COSMOGRAPHIA: A POST-LUCRECIAN FAUX MICRO-EPIC, the latest ground breaking incursion into the ever popular spectacle of the Epic Poem. Tracking the classic epic journey through the unfolding cosmos toward home, though occasionally disoriented by milling cows with similar intent, Cosmographia teems with nasty political invective, scurrilous spiritual slander, and endless exploitive sexual innuendo. Taking as its muses Cab Calloway and Charles Mingus, by the time it gets home, COSMOGRAPHIA has subjected the epic to unspeakable acts in the name of linguistic rectumtude, dada terrorism, and sporadic ejaculations of self-expression. Oh yeah!—poetry will never be the same.

Born and raised in Riverside, California, Michael Boughn moved to Canada in 1966 because of his opposition to the war against Viet Nam. In Vancouver he met and studied with Robin Blaser who introduced him to the work of William Blake, Charles Olson, H.D., Jack Spicer, Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams and other crucial writers. He spent nearly 10 years working in the Teamsters before returning to school to study with Robert Creeley and Jack Clarke in Buffalo, N.Y. where he received his PhD in 1986. Since 1993 he has lived in Toronto. He is the author of Iterations of the Diagonal, DISLOCATIONS IN CRYSTAL, Into the World of the Dead, One's own Mind, 22 SKIDOO/SUBTRACTIONS, and COSMOGRAPHIA: A POST-LUCRECIAN FAUX MICRO-EPIC.
