\"The (Soma)tic Exercises are innovative and crucial to our art form. . . . Conrad must be one of the most original practitioners of poetry forging new territory.\"--\"The Rumpus\"\"There was a time some of us believed poetry and poets could save the world; CAConrad never stopped believing it.\"--\"The Huffington Post\"From \"M.I.A. ESCALATOR\": \"The ultrasound machine gives the parents the ability to talk to the unborn by their gender, taking the inter-sexed nine-month conversation away from the child. The opportunities limit us in our new world. Encourage parents to not know, encourage parents to allow anticipation on either end. Escalators are a nice ride, slowly rising and falling, writing while riding, notes for the poem, meeting new people at either end, \"Excuse me, EXCUSE ME. . . .\" My escalator notes became a poem.\"CAConrad's \"ECODEVIANCE\" contains twenty-three new (Soma)tic writing exercises and their resulting poems, in which he pushes his political and ecological efforts even further. These exercises, unorthodox steps in the writing process, work to break the reader and writer out of the quotidian and into a more politically and physically aware present. In performing these rituals, CAConrad looks through a sharper lens and confirms the necessity of poetry and politics.
