On a Line from Donald Barthelme or Moments That Would Seem So

Reading Donald Barthelme – questions raised by its own (temporary) existence, which ends when the page is turned – is like sitting on a porch, drinking dark roasted coffee early in the morning, listening to a recording of Samuel Beckett only to find out that it’s not a recording – it’s Samuel Beckett from his chair under the table – but the coffee is still the coffee and the porch is still the porch and Beckett is reading Barthelme too.

Sam Rasnake’s works, receiving five nominations for The Pushcart Prize, have appeared in The Southern Poetry Anthology, Best of the Web 2009, Wigleaf, OCHO, MiPOesias iPad Companion 2012, Big Muddy, Literal Latté, Poets/Artists, LUMMOX 2012, BOXCAR Poetry Review Anthology 2, and Dogzplot Flash Fiction 2011. His latest poetry collection, Cinéma Vérité, was recently published by A-Minor Press.
