This Window Makes Me Feel
Published by Ugly Duckling Presse
Written in the long shadow of 9/11, This Window Makes Me Feel replaces the individual poet’s response to catastrophe with a collective, multi-vocal chorus of everyday articulations. Never before published in its entirety, This Window... is one of the earliest examples of a long poem solely composed with repurposed web language.
"Fitterman's long poem extracts moments of outsourced tenderness - simultaneously banal, vile, funny and sincere - to perform as a document of daily human life in a moment of chaos" - Ed Steck
