The HunchbackBy Sandy Diamond

Poetry. Sandy Diamond rants, whispers and tricks us into her scary, hilarious life as THE HUNCHBACK. Kerouac lifts her braid in an asylum; the highway patrol is always in her rear view mirror, on the tail of her fraudulent body. A man talking to his dog about death, a press conference for the Small People of America, a deli full of refugees criticizing the thickness of a blintz, the poet -- fractured -- lurches on her crooked path, cracking jokes, scrambling for wholeness in her Minnie Mouse slippers. Read these poems and you'll never feel the same about pain pills, postage stamps, revolving doors, truck logos, graphology, chopped liver, wooden eyes, and of course hunchbacks, again.
