Sarah Manguso and Jordan Davis have...gathered together a group of poets who, by the title’s implication, are free from the restraints and requirements imposed by what Davis calls “the government of poetry-land,” and radical compared to the staid, homogenized poetry cranked out by writers obsessed with the magazine-book-adjunct job-tenured job fast track to Ted Kooser-land.
