Poems by Steve Roggenbuck


Yes, Roggenbuck has cultivated a persona that is retarded, girlish, infantile, and otherwise abject. This has been done fruitfully and beautifully by Faulkner and Platonov and Mike Kelley and Tamy Ben-Tor and many other artists and writers. Roggenbuck has spent too much time reading and listening to the radically open, emo voices of social media to be exploiting them as a "gimmick." He echoes and amplifies them with sensitivity.
