A Review of Paper Guillotines in Emprise Review

In 2009, Emprise Review published my poem, "Bottle Rockets," a somewhat political narrative that references 9/11, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Challenger explosion and the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr and President John F. Kennedy (and all in twenty lines!). It's a poem and a publication I'm intensely proud of.

Today, Emprise Review released a sequence of mini-reviews written by Adam Tavel. Tavel Reviews three books: Selected Poems by Mary Ruefle, No Permanent Scars by Michael Hemery and my chapbook, Paper Guillotines. It is a lovely review and I couldn't be happier (How could I complain when someone writes about me, "Frame’s mature and searching voice conjures the righteous invective of early Auden and the terse muscularity of middle-era James Wright."

Many thanks to Tavel and everyone at Emprise Review for their continued support of my work.
