Let's Pretend We Never Met
By Nathaniel G. Moore
Let's Pretend We Never Met realizes the ten-year fixation the late great Roman poet Catullus has had on Nathaniel G. Moore. Catullus becomes filter, lens, judge, subject and object.
From the subjective finality of first-person illusory, Let's Pretend We Never Met is a poetic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. With dramatic pauses, near-novella overtures and biographical necessity Let's Pretend We Never Met cashes in nostalgia for a more bitter and honest currency for today's disposable culture.
Like Michael Ondaatje's The Collected Works of Billy the Kidd, Moore's poetry is a obsessed poetic biography, showcasing Moore at the height of his grave shift powers as a romantic pain magnet and exorciser--attempting to Houdini Catullus and himself from regret, depravity, and other histrionic side effects of modern life. With special appearances by Catullus' agent, Juventius, Rufus, Clodia Metelli and more.Paperback: 124 pages
