Rex Wilder’s new volume, Boomerangs in the Living Room, has just been released by Red Hen Press. He is currently editing There & Back: A Boomerang Anthology. Both feature a form he invented, a four-line poem in which the last word must rhyme with the first and be able to be recited in a single breath.
