"Whether celebrating clones or revising Led Zeppelin, Equi melds verse with aphorism, wisdom with wicked playfulness."-Entertainment Weekly. Equi's poems are under the breath asides from your cleverest friend-witty, thoughtful, and wry. SLIGHTA slight implies if not an insult (real or imagined) at least something unpleasant -- a slight cold, a slight headache. No one ever says: "You make me slightly happy." Although this, in fact, is often the case. Widely published and anthologized, Elaine Equi's work has appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, The American Poetry Review, Nation, and numerous volumes of The Best American Poetry.
