DESCRIPTION

THE IMPORTANT THING IS…,Winner of the 2009 Firewheel Chapbook Award, uses the metaphor of a game to explore the interplay between priorities and primacy– how we process competing influences on our logic, emotions, values and judgment. While written as poetry, it can also actually be played as a game (“John Cage meets Milton Bradley”). Whether “played” or just read as a series of poems, the work is meant to stir the reader to consider his or her own priorities, fixed and temporal, and to be aware of the myriad of influences at work upon them.

Marjorie Tesser’s first book is a riot, a concept, a poem you can play and play with…machinations of language funneling to sorrow and joy, thrills, offhanded and wacky happiness. Deal me in. Y’all play along. Shuffle and shuffle and read read read. —Bob Holman, author of The Collect Call of the Wild.
