You've earned an exciting new cell phone
Just ahead of the opening bell
Crawfish fascinating wildlife in a ditch
Now & then we wrestle with indoor air quality issues

Advance Praise

Dailey uses an extremely sharp facet of the Language Crystal to operate on a flabby world that has the nerve to be his…. Joel Dailey is the Robinson Jeffers of Post-Pop…. His work contains also the most thorough on-going critique of pretension in whatever form she may have been proclaimed.....—ANDREI CODRESCU
