Tender Buttons, both the press and the poem, work and play to change the way people perceive the world.  Come join in a subversive celebration of Tender Buttons' our 25th birthday and remake the forms of address that such a celebration might take!  All of the Tender Buttons books play with echo, intertextual appropriation and interpenetration from other disciplines: philosophy, science, porn…“Poetry as a theory of everything” said Maria Damon recently in her stitchery. Hannah’s work contains a radical take on the anxiety of influence and the “silent teachers” we all have within us start to speak as we read the map of her mind moving. Dodie’s Cunt-Ups asks us “Is the cut-up a male form?” Who owns the language?
