‘Lovers by Polarization’ by Jodie Zicherman

Move over, John Ashbery.  Make room for Jodie Zicherman.

From an email with the title "momma excitement," sent by Ms. Zicherman from Russia to thousands of people who might be interested in cheap prescription drugs by mail, comes this whimsical elegy (I’ve added slight formatting changes):

Lovers by Polarization

Or surf. He be region, doctoral.

I crucial or jumps absurd.

The an disperse soup miniature.

Or as irritable reprint. In in it shack my tolerant.
