Review of Rabbit Punch! & Interview in Poetry Matters

"Greg Santos' second book Rabbit Punch! is filled with lithe poems, quick on their feet, poems that are witty, whimsical, serious, sarcastic, celebratory, bittersweet. Some are entertaining, while others are deceptively so—poems layered with meaning that reward upon repeated readings." 
- Nancy Chen Long, Poetry Matters

Rabbit Punch! is reviewed in Poetry Matters. Please check out the entire review HERE.

I was also interviewed for Poetry Matters, where I discuss pop culture, found poetry, revision, books I'm reading, and more!

Please check out the entire interview HERE.

Many thanks to Nancy Chen Long for taking the time to interview me and for such a generous and detailed look at my book.



Poem for Charlie Hebdo

Je Suis Charlie
by Greg Santos

At home
We hid under a desk

Brutally threatened

Darkest day


Let us unite

Tell the media
Defend art
We will win

Waving pens and papers
Armed and dangerous
Final coup de grâce

Author's note: This poem was written using text remixed from the following article on the Charlie Hebdo shooting from CBC News (http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/world/charlie-hebdo-paris-shooting-12-dead-after-gunmen-storm-newspaper-s-hq-1.289215).
