Cheryl Townsend & tolek:

xib Publications
PO Box 262112
San Diego, CA, 92126

20 pp., $2.00

Call & response form collaborative poetry--Cheryl paints a soft-porn scenario, tolek repaints it from the male point of view. In the intro, Cheryl makes plain the impetus for (at least some of) her poetry: "I want women to know that it's okay to "want it" and more so to "get it." She is the editor of IMPETUS magazine, which often pursues a similar agenda; tolek edits XIB, which is not exactly a monastery newsletter.--luigi
