From the back cover:
“The Satire Lounge is a guide to the underbelly of the writing world, lit by a lone ‘laptop’s screenlight glint’ and fed by ‘Mike’s Fine Sardines.’ Here, ‘Thought Police’ patrol ‘high-speed poetry,’ while cowpies take over haiku. A ‘PhD Candidate Contemplates His Future’ in a world where only old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons can remind us of … what was it? Oh yes, those open ‘miles and miles / of miles and miles’ we used to call poetry.”
