Honey, We Shrank the Euphemism!

by Dan Coffey

I rarely reference my Rick Moranis anymore.

Dan Coffey has spent 13 years as the English Lit Librarian at Iowa State University. During his first year in Iowa, he had a poem published involving cows. He was told never to write about cows, but that was before he moved to Iowa from Buffalo. Now he is told to never write about buffalo or Buffalo. He does write book and music reviews for Poets Quarterly and Avant Music News, and produces a podcast called “Papers for the Border” that features left-of-left-of-center music.
