Aaron Belz (www.belz.net) is the author of several previous collections, most recently Lovely, Raspberry.
"The poems in Glitter Bomb pull no punches: irreverent, devastating, even nasty at times, they capture the present moment in all its absurdity and hyperreality. "Lampwise by altarlight" (pace Dylan Thomas), Aaron Belz keeps his eye on the object: often hilarious, he is also wise..."
"Belz embraces narrative, brevity, down-to-earth diction, and slapstick. His approach resembles the New York School's lighter side, where Ashbery's use of Popeye in a poem evokes pop art and O'Hara's conversational tone disarms the reader to open him up for heavier material that follows."
