Erratic Fire, Erratic Passion is a collection of found poems composed of the words of professional athletes. The content of post-game interviews and sports chatter is so often meaningless, if not insufferable, and yet there are athletes like Metta World Peace who transcend lame clichés and rote patter, who use language in surprising ways, who can be funny and shocking and insightful and alarmingly sincere pure poetry. Muhammad Ali offered dazzling displays of lexical wizardry, and Allen Iverson's infamous practice rant shifted the post-game press conference from the banal to the absurd. This book is a celebration of these rare and exceptional moments. Various poetic forms and line-breaks highlight or, in the words of Deion Sanders, deem to set a candor on the sophisticated, sublime, and surprising performances of language made by professional athletes.
