Art is about something the way a cat is about the house, says Allen Grossman. This is abundantly true of Emily Rosko?s poems in Prop Rockery, a condition she defines with a quote from King Lear: a looped and windowed raggedness. And while this condition is pretend, and these poems are indeed virtuoso performances, the despair, loneliness, lies, and miscommunication they examine are as real as anything in art. Parataxis and fragments meet rhyme and chewy-on-the-tongue Anglo Saxon diction at the axis of postmodern irony. Prop Rockery explodes in your mouth-no sugar, plenty of bite.?Natasha Saj, author of Bend and Red Under the Skin.
