Buddha Box

Buddha Box

Winner of the 2003 Green Rose Prize

"As subversive in its simplicity as any truly American Buddhism, or as any truly feminine anything, the poetry in Buddha Box is both radical and beautiful; both unflinching and consoling . . . Gretchen Mattox is absolutely original in her strategy of bringing Zen mind to the down-and-out human landscape of West Los Angeles. Her resulting discoveries are quite often simply brilliant. Buddha Box is filled with light." -Gail Wronsky

"'All fire, ready to take and not worry if it offends,' writes Gretchen Mattox in this Zen-supple, hungrily-burning collection of poems. This is LA, this is the Buddha Box, these are the lineaments of joy and detachment set, raging jewel in lotus, before us. Pink skies, astral bodies, saguaros, gas stations, love, grief-all the desperate and divine details appear in order to disappear, as they are masterfully chanted in this extraordinary voice." -Carol Muske-Dukes
