Noah Falck - Snowmen Losing Weight - Just Buffalo Literary Center

Snowmen Losing Weight

Snowmen Losing Weight is an approachable collection of 61 poems on a range of topics from baseball and mustaches to Dick and Jane. The collection is broken down into four sections, presented in a unique accordion-style book with hand-inked covers and endpages.”

Noah Falck - Celebrity Dream Poems - Just Buffalo Literary Center

Celebrity Dream Poems

“‘I walk for hours through a meadow,/my pockets leaking bacon bits’—this is how Noah Falck sees Bill Clinton, and more importantly, how Noah Falck sees us seeing Bill Clinton. Celebrities are mirrors in which we watch ourselves watching them. These poems purify that experience, and in doing so, clarify the beauty and sadness of fame—how much we want to matter, and that mattering now is largely tied up in fame. God, I fear, needs a press agent. The book’s Berryman epigraph—Peoples bore me—seems a head fake here—people do not bore Noah Falck. What surprises me most is how much he makes me feel for these people I feel nothing for. I mean you, Lindsay Lohan, and you, Tom Cruise. Here, you are resurrected . . . as human.”
—Bob Hicok

Life As A Crossword Puzzle

Life As A Crossword Puzzle was selected by Guest Judge Tyler Meier (Kenyon Review) as the winning manuscript for Ohio in the Open Thread 2009 Tri-State Chapbook Contest.

“The tonal textures-mini-tragedies, high comedy, irony in sequins, cheap jokes, silver—pure pathos, poems that feel like a clemency—mash up and make something that looks at once like a chimera, then a mirror. And perhaps that’s why I’m drawn to this chapbook. Always accessible, Falck is making possible what normally isn’t possible: fantasy moonlighting as realism, irony dressed up in the ‘I mean this with all my heart’ sweatpants.”
—Tyler Meier

Measuring Tape For The Midwest

Mostly a humorous poetry collection but with elements of an eerie post bluetooth age lurking. No pussyfooting. These poems first appeared in Bat City Review, Blazevox 2K6, Combatives, Columbia Poetry Review, Dusie, Nexus, Orpheus, Pilot, Redivider, Word For/Word and in the Cy Gist anthology Face Time.

Available from Pavement Saw Press

Homemade Engines From A Dream

“The river has always been there, always outside rolling through into a Utopia of loneliness and all season the overcast, the blurry frame of life, a landscape of abandoned vehicles, a landscape of burnt grass and trees dying in the gloom. There was once a sky, the one you’ve seen in photographs, in postcards but it departed, smeared itself away.”
