    Scott Wozniak’s “Bum-rush the Fantasy” comes out of the gate kicking and screaming with bloodied knuckles pounding poetic pretense into the pavement. “Last night/,” he writes, “I found myself / eating / shotgun shells / and drinking / gasoline.” This is a poet willing to spit fire and carve the sky into ashes. Verse after verse, he charges through the drug dealers, dope-fiends, and drunks who populate the crumbling pipedream city around him, urging them to “grab a brick / and raise it high / bef Scott Wozniak’s “Bum-rush the Fantasy” comes out of the gate kicking and screaming with bloodied knuckles pounding poetic pretense into the pavement. “Last night/,” he writes, “I found myself / eating / shotgun shells / and drinking / gasoline.” This is a poet willing to spit fire and carve the sky into ashes. Verse after verse, he charges through the drug dealers, dope-fiends, and drunks who populate the crumbling pipedream city around him, urging them to “grab a brick / and raise it high / before your target, / then throw and let / your voice rain down.” Real-world chaos perpetuates itself into a brutal frenzy, until the flames soften into embers on his lips, and “a warm, / bronze glow,” gives way to the conceivable reality of a “Secret, Special Place” where the glimmer of faith within a lost world gives pause for restoration. Mr. Wozniak has successfully married gritty realism with the reluctant expectation of a favorable and fantastical outcome. I will definitely revisit this collection.

    Just got this in the mail and it's an honest-to-god old school chap. Like, xeroxed copied, hand written titles, folded paper and staples. I'm feeling all teenage-rage right now and I haven't even read it yet! Just got this in the mail and it's an honest-to-god old school chap.

    I won this book through goodreads first reads. I enjoyed reading these poems more than I expected. It was a good read, albeit short. I will put the minor spelling an grammatical errors down to poetic license. It is nice to see poetry is still being written and embraced.

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. An Anarchist's cookbook of verse describes this collection of modern poetry perfectly. S. E. Wozniak's verses are a great read for those who don't fit in, but stand out. Those who prefer the harsh realities of life to whimsical musing will appreciate Bumrush the Fantasy's every verse. It has a nice balance of metaphorical and straight forward poetry, and while some may not see the beauty in it, the simplistic binding and design just add to the I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.
