Memory Foam by Adam Soldofsky

$15.00 Disorder Press

Gentle, confident poems cascade, unnamed, through a muted urban landscape, eventually diving off of big ideas atop delicate stems. Soldofsky has a knack for condensation, which is, perhaps, one for word-choice: an expansive vocabulary attuned to the microscopic. And a voice I wish to inhabit. Smart, playful, observant, energizing. A wonderful debut.

All that is superfluous won’t hold still for
an inventory

….   …..and the wicked instincts of youth
are not always with us

…..        …………..what my soul craves is a
yes or a no

……….           ………………as it turns out, I
have not produced any dignified silence

                     *    *    *

The future is the biggest erogenous
zone

……….and a foolish person is also a
great mystery

……………..I am a repository for the
most insidious comforts

……………………..when I’d like to be
an incubator of relief
