Metatron - The Idiot On Fire (Brad Casey)
Regular price $12.00
Let Brad Casey’s poetry debut put 27,000 rays of light into your body and then take you through “the sads.” From Leonard Cohen to Louis Riel; Instagram to the Tarot; Anne Carson to Carl Sagan; and everything in between (ghosts, shamans, mermaids and dogs), The Idiot on Fire is an exploration of love—in its many incarnations—in a world of violence, distraction and inevitable disappointment. The result is a text that blurs the line between subject and narrator, between love and home.
Brad Casey is the founder and managing editor of The 4 Poets. This is his debut collection of poetry. He lives in Toronto, Canada. Brad's Twitter is @drunkandalive.
64 pages.Perfect-bound. First edition, first printing. Cover art by Marc O’Brien.
“Brad Casey is a young man on a motorcycle with his long hair blowing in the wind. He oughtta have been born in the 70s, but he’s here, now, with a laptop of poems and a wandering spirit. From Mexico to New York City, he encounters hippie magic, nightmares of ghosts, fucking and falling in love, and a trail of url links and usernames.” - Sook-Yin Lee
“Brad Casey’s work reads like a meal of summer fruit so ripe that it is nearly alcoholic; Each poem dangling so heavy that every word brings the fruit closer to earth, closer to a palm, closer to a mouth.” - Brooke Manning
