Whelmed by Nicole Markotic

What might a word lose - or gain - without its prefix?

Each prose poem in Whelmed features a word that has been unhinged from its prefix, allowing new meanings - radically unfamiliar, yet uncannily intimate - to emerge from these prefixless word deposits. Part prose-poem sequence and part encyclopedia of unpredictably irregular terms, Whelmed is at times deranging, almost disturbing, sometimes detached, and always joyfully rupting.

'Addictionary of words lopped off from their prefixial syllables, this lightful pendium mises hours of giggles and a joyful sire to copy ad finitum! So much pleasure! So much verbal legerdemain. So spiring! Can't stop/won't stop reading, jotting, sharing. Constraint at its most unconstrained.'
-  Maria Damon

'With Whelmed, the Woman in the Shoe (who has too much to do) and the stoned, fixed priestesses of Apollo invoke the order of an alphabet of prefixes. Enjoy the maze - take with you two string balls, one of truth and one of belief. Her mastery of language makes poetry free.'
