Holly Melgard’s Catcall (Louise Bak)

Louise speaks to Brooklyn author, Holly Melgard, who’ll discuss qualities of her chapbook, Catcall (Ugly Duckling Presse). The poem involves a voice catcalling a male in public contexts. With obsessive and claustrophobic strains in the calling out, the narrative involves demands of the affection of a stranger, with some comedic tension, like emphasizing the bittiness of the male form.
