A poetry tour de force, Bill Campana has done what few poets could ever dream of in writing sharp, entertaining poetry that doesn’t cater to anyone but is enjoyed by all. A veteran of the 1990’s poetry slam movement, Said Beauty to the Blues proves Bill is a writer of many styles and ideas. In his live performances, he comes at you like a machine gun of short, powerful linguistic observations. Having this book gives you the opportunity to give each piece its due.
