Open up a scene at the check out. Paper or plastic or the end of Disneyland. Find the question of being chosen or glanced at. And “the city oh the city/a place where no one is from...” And the best, the sweatshop. Read Benjamin Schmitt on your way somewhere and let his poems wrap their hard-working fingers around yourimagination.”-Paula C. Lowe, author, C’est Moo (release, June, 2013) journal editor, Solo Novo publisher, BIG YES PRESSThe Global Conspiracy To Get You In Bed, the debut book by Benjamin Schmitt, is full of lyric surprises and, despite the comic turn in its title, conceals a profoundly serious underbelly about the nature of American life in our time. I admire it for the imagery and the surrealistic sense of transition but unlike much surrealism coming out of America today, it maintains its content: lyrical quality of that imagery, the merging of the political and the personal, erotic material, the desperation of real intimacy.Sam Witt, author of Everlasting Quail and Sunflower-Brother and poetry editor of Jaded Ibis Press.
