Lyric poems channeling water forms and metaphors through horror films and gore. “Here’s a reason to celebrate: a fresh batch of poems by Colin Herd. I don’t know anyone else who can make zing the unexpected proximity of danger and corn on the cob, or for that matter castles and bottoms. Swamp Kiss is a delight to read, a lyric bustle of double understandings, jingles, neologisms, jokes, and bathside musings. Tracing ebullient arcs of thought, these poems revel in the language of everyday stuff, sometimes doleful, other times joyous.” - Lila Matsumoto
