Item description for You Can Tell The Horse Anything by Mary Koncel...

In her debut collection of prose poetry, Mary A. Koncel invites her readers to gaze at life through a darkly humorous kaleidoscopic lens. Her eccentric characters long for salvation and insight, as they travel through landscapes and circumstances that are plainly surreal, but echo profoundly in reality. Each poem is a gauntlet, thrown down to challenge our perception and stop us in our tracks. This writer's literary voice is distinctive and significant, and sure to be a beacon in the years to come.

Mary A. Koncel received her MFA in poetry from Columbia College in Chicago. Ms. Koncel received a fellowship in poetry from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and her poems have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Reviews - What do customers think about You Can Tell The Horse Anything?

"It's 11 o'clock. Do you know where your babies are? We shake our heads, shrug, no."  Apr 15, 2006
The prose poem is one of the least understood or even definable forms of poetry, yet is used frequently by contemporary poets from Robert Hass to Yusef Komunyakaa who include a few in each collection. But it is, until recently, rare to have an entire collection of prose poems. Koncel' s new collection is one of those few and not only does it demonstrate repeatedly what a successful prose poem should do, poems that act with out explanation in a matter of fact narrative, that occasionally reads like a surreal news report. These poems exist in a bizarre yet believable world. Some are spread out series that includes "When the Babies Discover Torque," "When The Babies Find a Cat," "When The Babies Are Missing Again" that are a hybrid of cute and dangerously curious babies, to the extent that the narrator, along with other adults are afraid of them.

For me, the charm of many of these poems are the sudden turns many make such as "The Farmer's Way," that starts with farmers burning everything including themselves to which the narrator calmly says, "I blame asparagus," and follows one Mr. Clark who "had been burning for 58 years." An intersection of characters opens and closes each poem. Instead of burning away
Most of her poems have a weird logical leap " I like asparagus. All of these farmers grew asparagus." If you like Russel Edson, you will enjoy Koncel's book.
