    Chapbooks are not only becoming a popular means for placing new works before the public in a time when publishing houses are tightening the belt that surrounds us all, but the format of Chapbooks is becoming an art form in itself. Witness the current work of Nicole Mauro, TAX-DOLLAR SUPER-SONNET. This bitingly clever collection of verse is described by the author as ‘a limited edition chap written by me and nine of the most recent US Presidents, and designed, published and distributed by Chapbooks are not only becoming a popular means for placing new works before the public in a time when publishing houses are tightening the belt that surrounds us all, but the format of Chapbooks is becoming an art form in itself. Witness the current work of Nicole Mauro, TAX-DOLLAR SUPER-SONNET. This bitingly clever collection of verse is described by the author as ‘a limited edition chap written by me and nine of the most recent US Presidents, and designed, published and distributed by Dawn Pendergast and her micro-press for the Dusie Chapbook Kollektiv, year 3.’ The presentation is a red and white striped cloth cover, hand sewn with thread stars/asterisks that when opened reveals an inner cover of a solid blue field again decorated with the stars/asterisks: the theme of political mumbo jumbo is clearly set! Across the following pages, set in standard type but sprinkled with typewriter ‘x’ s are selected words and phrases by the last nine Presidents, beginning with poem ‘43’ – Washington, that usurps key words and phrases and bumbles and truths uttered by the 43rd President George W. Bush. From these actual excerpts Mauro has fashioned a narrative of sorts, painting a portrait of a man and time not likely to be forgotten: ‘Ordinary Iraquis May God bless you all x we are x foment x most x very and so x Oceans and friendly Neighbors x that x story x that x freedom The story of x even x was x we learned x more Even Than x before….. Mauro proceeds in like manner to explore the words of Clinton, the elder Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, and Eisenhower, arranging them in excerpts from varying parts of the country (Washington, Orlando, Baltimore, Houston). Each ‘poem’ may first appear as a word salad, but with Mauro’s sensitive placement of spoken words she manages to paint portraits of men and periods of time that on reading again (and again) become indelible reminders of where we have been. Is this poetry or is this a design element posing as poetry? At first glance this collection of nine works would appear as a gimmick for attention, adorned as it is with such a patriotic cover. But careful study of each of these pages reveals not only a keen eye and ear for truth, but a philosophical bent that is as subtle as it is poignant. And that is a test of fine poetry – make a mark, turn around, re-examine, and find a lasting impression. TAX-DOLLAR SUPER- SONNET is a treat for the eye and the mind. Grady Harp

    Tax-dollar Super Sonnet by Nicole Mauro Star-stitched.* Pages tiny “x’s” scattered. At first I think stars, then I think crosses…on churches, in cemeteries. Soldiers “x’ed” out.

At first I think stars, then I think crosses…on churches, in cemeteries. Soldiers “x’ed” out. Poems for/from X presidents (their words appear verbatim): Bush, Clinton, W.

After years of hand on heart facing the red and white stripes hung in the corner of your classroom, how many of you can utter the verse without hesitation? Mauro’s rendition captures the amazing impact of the malaise of W. Bush-age where the sovereign merged with god, lord, bible, pulpit, and prayer. Star/tling poems by Nicole Mauro. Deep impressions, never to be forgotten. (*Cover is flag fabric with hand-sewn asterisks and striped stitches by Dawn Pendergast.)
