A Plate of Chicken

Matthew Rohrer

Poetry. “A PLATE OF CHICKEN is a masterpiece of subtlety and frailty, a series of glimpses, thought-fragments, coping devices, and simple declarative sentences. ‘My function,’ Rohrer writes, ‘is to be in love between two people who hate each other,’ and to this end he serves the gods of sentence and line simultaneously. This gathering of seven-line stanzas opens a door to a blanket of white noise, like Brian Eno’s Music for Airports, and never lets up”–Lewis Warsh.
