Congratulations, Matt London!

Matt London started off our thesis season with a wonderful defense of his terrific collection Disaster Recovery Drawer. Here's the title poem in all its strange and wonderful beauty:

Disaster Recover Drawer

This is where all the women and children are.

All the walls are made from bleached particleboard.

It has a nice, wood-laminate facing.

Despite the hollow cold, no fires are allowed.

They have battened down their furniture.

They have loosed their dreams.

All have released their prayers.

And the world is very slippery, very strong.

Please join me in congratulating Matt for a job well done.
