Dan Nielsen:

BGS Press
1240 William St.
Racine, WI, 53402

16 pp., $2.00

This wonderful little chap with its 15 poem by the Wisconsin's voracious, wildman poet-artist-publisher Dan Nielsen is provocative, thrilling, head-wrenching, and almost as much fun as a bucket of psychotropics. Most of these have previously appeared in publications like TIGHT, PEARL, BOUILLABAISSE, IN YOUR FACE, etc. His poetry is startling, tight, compressed, etched in absurd realism, bulging with comic relief, or sardonic sadness. Nielson has a butcher's-eye for splintered cultural bones, and he is serving up a soup of choice social satire, laced with bizarre line art by Greg Evanson. Damn nice.--R.R. Lee Etzwiler
