Big Windows Review
Today, my poem, "Reboot: The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" appears online courtesy of The Big Windows Review! (It will also be included in their print edition in May.)
It's from a series of poems that plays around with the idea of rebooting: producing a distinctly new version (of an established media franchise, as a film, TV show, video game, or comic book), mainly through oulipian constrained writing techniques, based on TV Guide's self-rating of the "Top 50 TV shows of all time." Working texts were edited/manipulated/modified from public-facing summaries of the shows.
