This unauthorized

send-up on literature’s

most precious member


skewers the life and

times of Poetry. With bold

colors, gritty words


and funny stories,

POP X POETRY’s artsy 

biographical  

tone in no way means

you’ll learn anything at all.  

You may lose brain cells. 

Featuring over

300 poems, 30  

original art

pieces, colorful,

bright designs and more, this book’s

narrative botox

blast gives Poetry

the long-overdue facelift

we were waiting for. 

Presented in a

series of collage pieces,

the book moves between

small daily moments

of existence and larger

spiritual quests. 

Written in easy-

to-read haiku, this volume

reveals the secrets

of Poetry’s life.

Hot affairs, celebrity  

encounters, brutal

confessions, love, loss,

and laughter weave through this dark 

comedy of words. 

Vivid artwork with

visual compositions

create this satire

on Poetry, art,

memoir, fiction, and culture.

You may pee your pants. 

POP X POETRY

has rap songs, bad guys, celebs, booze, sex, gossip, and

lies: Reality 

TV Poetry, action-

movie Poetry.

You’ll remember how

to read again. Or want to.

This story’s got it all. 

Critics say “This book

reads like Moby Dick on drugs.

It also reads like your

life.” For everyone

who hated High School English class, or loves streaming shows,


and staring at their

iPhones, this is the

book for you. Sit down


and experience

life alongside an icon.  

No one’s seen or done


more than Poetry:

Lovers, wars, fights, and drinking binges make this fun.


There are serious

parts to focus on as well;

feel Poetry’s pain


while being beaten

into submission by greats

like Shakespeare and Donne.


Hide beneath the bed

while Emily Dickinson

tinkers with some lines.


Bolt from the sheets next

to Poetry when their ex

texts at 3 AM.

Extend from Persian

landscapes to Instagram likes

in this whirlwind ride.
