"Ghazal Games overflows with intelligent charm: its well-formed couplets, fueled by iconoclasm, are blessed with clarity, goodheartedness, pizzazz, and prankishness. Let’s crown Roger Sedarat the king of Carnival; long may he reign."

In these poems, Roger Sedarat is funny, clever, sometimes poignant, and frequently entertainingly caustic. He twists the ghazal form around for the fun of it. and says things about life and memory. The poems seem effortlessly tossed off, and yet they can't be (can they)?
Anyone (not just poemheads) can read this without feeling poetrified.
