Review of Crocodiles by Martha Boss

Even the title of this enchanted canvas-covered chapbook by Martha Boss comes alive with unruly brashness. The second “c” in Crocodiles has moved over and embraced the second “o” creating what looks like a rebellious liaison that bubbles forward into the book proper. Retro typos like this happen in the alternative production universe of the Hermes Rocket typewriter, circa 1987, used by Boss to manually type out each finished and unique page.  For more of my review of Crocodiles go here:  http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2015/08/crocodiles-poems-by-martha-boss.html
