In her third collection of poetry, Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz celebrates the ups and downs of being poet with a day job. Whether exulting the mundaneness of office life (“Rules of Slack”), musing about hidden perks of college poetry gigs (“Ode to College Cafeterias”) or hilariously defending the use of humor in poetry (“To the Guy Who Said that Funny Poetry Ain’t Poetry”), this book continues Aptowicz’s tradition of witty, honest and idiosyncratic work.
