Emblematic Moon

Each page is carefully designed, visual patterns of verbal energies intersecting, overlapping, colliding, passing over under and through each other, enhancing and destabilizing each other, going everywhere. In short, Vernon Frazer.

Improvisations

Improvisations

Improvisations, in my humble opinion, will take its place in the modernist,postmodernist and alternative pantheon of masterpieces . . . It is and will be a poetic force to be reckoned with well into this century and beyond.

Bodied Tone

“Bodied Tone is terrific---the rhythmic vitality is just that, full of life, but it is seductive too; one gets caught up in the percussive musicality of the phrasing. It’s a driving musicality—
more bebop than balladry, for sure.”

— Lyn Hejinian

Demolition Fedora

. . . With concentrated, prismatic word play, Frazer spills open the accordion to form "with idiomatic staying power" "longitudinal" "feats of closure."

Holiday Idyling

In this change of pace from his burning explorations of life and language, Frazer's series of pastoral poems entice the reader with poetic gems that capture moods of romantic anticipation,
reflection and wistful longings... a truly magical work.

Sing Me One Song

Demon Dance

. . .an exhausting but exhilarating volume of poems . . . Frazer eschews the safe, tidy miniatures of the salon for poetic forms that strain to rearrange the foundations of language as a tool for naming the unnameable . . . Vernon Frazer is a poet who takes no prisoners. Read Demon Dance and be amazed.
