CZ has a message, & does not stray. Nor, does he shy away from vocabulary. This means you might want to have a dictionary handy, but don’t utilize it until you finish reading the poem at hand. IMHO, just read the poem & let your mind turn words into images. Good chance you will come to the same message/conclusion/advice or question that Charlie did.

After the fact, I found it fun to search the words I didn’t know, only to find that in context of his work, I did know.

Obviously & ultimately, it’s not just the words Charlie uses, but the way he employs them.

Yet, Charlie can take the simplest of words and forms to create: the amusing, { “Colonel beef-fruit”} the didactic {“…multiply in zeroes.”} and the unnerving {“3, 2, 1 …boom!}”

At this point my fave chapter is “Advanced Mushrooms [The Kodak Man]”

CZero #14

In this chapter I found CZ”s current & topical messages revealed themselves most easily. This is especially evident in the poem “Mozart: The Orange Apocalypse”


CZ’s book of poetry is a like an artistic experiment, that has unlocked the DNA of words.
