Now the fat pug dog rose and shook himself, scattering his hair over the carpet. He was an ugly little animal with a black face on a tan body, pop eyes, and a nose so upturned that it was difficult for him to breathe.

Flag as Inappropriate. Christopher Bursk (born 1943) is an American poet, professor, and activist. The Way Water Rubs Stone (Word Works, 1988).

Poetry. Winner of the 2002 Green Rose Prize. Christopher Bursk's latest collection, OVID AT FIFTEEN, is not just profoundly honest; it is profoundly brave. These astonishing poems explore the space between sensuality, sexuality, and love-a landscape in which flawed human beings give birth to the flawed human beings who will one day take care of them, each generation screwing up even as it adds to the universal fund of beauty and compassion. Above all, OVID AT FIFTEEN reminds us what it means to feel the wonder of life too keenly-to "want to throw yourself/ off the cliff, plunge/ into the very heart of color."
Gravelblade
In Ovid at Fifteen, Christopher Bursk weaves father and son, child and old man together in a contemplative, candid, and melancholically creepy work. Bursk seems to be contemplating his own sins in relation to those of his father, forging experience and mythology into a personal and unflinching series of poems. Through Bursk's recollections, we see the disturbing, the personal, the thoughts and experiences laid vulnerable and bare, left for us to observe and contemplate. Like Ovid, Bursk creates an unsettling mythology where the gods have been stood upon their heads.

Despite the candor and mythologized sense of his past, though, Bursk leaves the reader (at least me) highly unsettled. The graphic homo-eroticism of his recollections, particularly of his father and his youth, make the objective coolness of his classroom experiences (as a teacher) seem out of place. As confessional poetry, I'm afraid the Bursk may have confessed too much.

Bursk is brave. His eyes are as open as his heart. His language is a blade carving into a tree. Read him.
