Praxis Etudes – Justin Katko

“Justin Katko is nay one afraid to build multiple bunkers and is, well, quite luckily, one of the most threatening poets writing today. In arche and future and tender curve to present, the notion of persona does no righteousness of fire to Katko’s affectivity and nerved up prosodic methods. Reader of this, read this book and admire.”
