Feed Review

Feed is the fourth book in the Teebs tetralogy. It's an epistolary recipe for the main character, a poem of nourishment, and a jaunty walk through New York's High Line park, with the lines, stanzas, paragraphs, dialogue, and registers approximating the park's cultivated gardens of wildness. Among its questions, Feed asks what's the difference between being alone and being lonely? Can you ever really be friends with an ex? How do you make perfect mac & cheese? Feed is an ode of reconciliation to the wild inconsistencies of a northeast spring, a frustrating season of back-and-forth, of thaw and blizzard, but with a faith that even amidst the mess, it knows where it's going.

Title:Feed

    Tommy Pico continues to be my favorite queer poetic voice and "Feed," the fourth book in his series is no exception. Dealing with climate change, love, aliens, and Beyonce, all in his stream-of-consci...

    Reading FEED feels like receiving a meandering text message from your funniest friend, or if Twitter didn't have a character limit. Tommy Pico's genius is present in the way he is able to catch the re...

    Tommy Pico is a genius of craft, of turning the thing on its head and exploring it from all sides, of wit, of the auditory and the visual, of somehow tackling it all at once—scarring headlines, food...

    Witty, lyrical, and generally irreverent this was a pretty solid poetry collection.I tend to like it when poets don't take themselves too seriously, and it seems like Tommy Pico is one such poet! Some...

    Pico's latest work is another stream of poetic consciousness that explores being friends with your ex, hookups, family life (and death), and the philosophies of what lies beyond Earth's orbit-- or if ...
