Throw Back Thursday with Matt Hart

If you were at Dollhouse #29, then you had the honor of witnessing Matt Hart and his amazing poetry. We got a glimpse of his long poem “Radiant Action”, and if you were a fan, then you’ll be pleased to hear some of its sections are in Ghost Town & Spoke Too Soon.  The experience is like a comet storm colliding with your brain (Aka Mind Blowing, but in the most pleasurable sense). So check it out!

And as a Bonus, Radiance & Wreckage: an Interview with Matt Hart from Ghost Town.
