Talk Poetry by Irish ex-pat Mairead Byrne is full of wry and cracked observations of the quotidian rather in the manner of stand-up comedy but delineated with the eye and ear of the poet. The book is great fun. P.S.--I recommend reading out loud.

Read another chapbook of finely crafted flash fiction, The Land of the Free, by Geoffrey Forsyth. Fairly mainstream in style but I like the understatement and subtlty. Well worth seeking out from the good folks at Rose Metal Press.
