    One thought on “American Boys”

    1. Certain lines in Dimitrov's poetry shine at you, the kind of words that make you want to whip out a highlighter and mark them forever. Some bits here fell flat, some word choices were weak and occasionally the picture, so solid at the opening, wavered by the end of a poem. The text message screen shots amused the hell out of me, a clever little thing that made me giggle. American Boys was good; not great, not amazing, not mind-blowing, but worth a read and I have high hopes for Begging For It. M [...]

    2. this one broke my heart a little bit, but that could just be me being a sucker for short, searing, concluding lines. see: America is about finding something to worship. and We sleep a little and we live. / That's what we do. and Sometimes it helps me get home.

    3. Alex Dimitrov is able to make poetry cool again.He is the modern day version of Douglas Coupland for poetry.I haven't been interested in poetry in awhile. So I was so surprised to read his poetry and have it resonate for me. He modernizes it by incorporating text messages, Grindr messages, etc.Looking forward to reading his next book of poetry and that it goes beyond just an eBook on 's Kindle.
