I, Too, Have a Reputation to Maintain

Sueyeun Juliette Lee - Buck Fu (0'55"). The four emphatic "hey!" phrases round off with a hilariously understated "hyuh" ("an angelic chop"), after which a more intimate register is established and the lexical action shifts to the meticulously rhythmed lists. A nice introduction to a poet I'd not known before. • Listen to the rest of Lee's 16 January 2007 reading at Kelly Writers House here. Lee pens a paragraph a day at Korean Hell (nice pun). Her press is called Corollary. Looks like she's doing doctoral work at Temple.
