Pinsky who? ELISA GABBERT is our kind of poet. "Take me to the library; I'm in the mood to get murdered," she writes in a poem called "BLGPM W/ DTHWSH" in her first collection, The French Exit. Gabbert — whom Bookslut has called the Zoe Saldana of letters — even engages with the demon Internet: she blogs for Ploughshares, writes about smells for Open Letters Monthly, and tweets topics as diverse as W.B. Yeats and lipstick. By day, the Boston resident works as an SEO/marketing copywriter. By night, she does whatever it is that poets do, and takes the Hub by storm.
