where the writers are
O, Was You Ever

I discovered a new American poet, Hailey Leithauser, through her poems "Was you ever bit by a dead bee?" and "O, She Says" marked by palindromes (bad dab, o gnat tango!)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palindrome

In the first poem, "a muscular sensuality of language" and "grittiness of repetition" comes through with "a pure exuberance" in the traditional triolet form  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triolet  of French poetry as Curtis Fox and Jeffrey Shotts aptly point out.

In the second poem, Leithauser makes fun of the ode while stringing together words in an original way that is interesting and amusing.

You can listen to both poems here.
