Review of Self Portrait as Mae West One-Liner by Paisley Rekdal
Self Portrait as Mae West One-Liner by Paisley Rekdal was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 25, 2013. Paisley Rekdal was no doubt teased mercilessly over her name. I almost did not get past it from laughing but I'm sure glad I did. Maybe she channeled all her youthful angst into her poetry. Whatever the explanation for her gift, I sure am glad she is sharing it. Self Portrait is an intricate rant of rhymes within rhymes, consonance, alliteration, and maybe masturbation. Try reading it out loud as fast as possible and in only one breath. Brava!
