Like the wavering foliage which inspired William Wordsworth's autobiographical epic, "America's Top 40 Countdown" is the catchy Beatrice of Brandon Brown's new book. Writing through the Top 40 pop songs on the chart of September 14, 2013, Brown's poems track the life of a song as it resounds through an organism. An organism who bathes, reads, writes, likes, fights, loves, hates, and fucks seems human; the soundtrack never stops.
