Official website for poet and author, Toni Mirosevich
With wit and canny wordplay, Toni Mirosevich eviscerates linguistic bromides, delivering poems that consistently surprise. A high-octane critique of contemporary culture emerges from her fearless take on the oddments and phrasing of idiomatic American discourse. In long-lined sonnets and jazzy improvisations, the speaker juggles a mix of colloquial and formal diction, learned and popular referents. Winning titles "Lie or Lay," "Lucky Stiff," "Old and In The Way," may charm, but this poet knows "Our worst impulse has yet to be discovered." A provocative intelligence powers these sizzling lyrics.
