Poetry! Book of it! About NYC!

Jodie’s mother says the song is dirty,

you know, You’ve Got What It Takes,

like in doing it, but at least they talk

about stuff. They’re Unitarians…

–Meredith Trede, Tenement Threnody


I just got my copy today.  Love these poems–compact, in a language that manages to feel both truly New York (spare, immediate) and rich.  Keep on, Trede, keep on!
