Sleigh Royal (part one)

It’s not common for this site to feature more than one work from each poet, but it’s also not common to receive an amazing three-part poem from one of the worlds most respected and recognized spam poets, Stefanie Goldstein. Ms. Goldstein first grew into prominence in 1999 via a series of critical poems published in the British edition of Vogue aimed at the United States, her most famous being “Stop Being Obese and Unhappy”.

In 2005, Ms. Goldstein inexplicably changed her style to a more abstract and conversational tone; one that shied away from direct political and national confrontation and, instead, embraced what she self-mockingly refers to as "walking through a crowded train station and remembering only the fragments of conversations".
