In Love Poem to the Phrase Let s Get Coffee, Catherine Pierce writes I adore your elegant manner, one hand on the car door, the other on the ass. She writes with her own tricky elegance, one that acknowledges yet adores language s self-serving grace.MoreIn Love Poem to the Phrase Let s Get Coffee, Catherine Pierce writes I adore your elegant manner, one hand on the car door, the other on the ass. She writes with her own tricky elegance, one that acknowledges yet adores language s self-serving grace. Pierce deftly blends repetition with sophisticated syntax, and a sinister wit glows inside the emotional wisdom of her vision. Animals of Habit is an exhilarating book. Andrew Hudgins If I didn t know the poet personally, I d think the name Catherine Pierce was a pseudonym, for these poems are not merely edgy, they are razor-sharp-they disembowel. What an extraordinary command of structure, persona, and humor this poet has! In one fell swoop, she has re-invented the love poem and eschewed both pretentiousness and the anti-intellectual by being always smart and entertaining. Kathy Fagan
