A lazy calendar writer would be sure to lead with the fact that Matthew and Michael Dickman are identical twin poets. It’s a tiny touch of the freakshow, and just enough to catch a prurient eye. We’re better than that, here. Aren’t we? Oh, what the hell: Matthew and Michael Dickman are identical twin poets. It’s not like they’re hiding their family ties; though their poetry is anything but identical. Matthew’s poems are more traditional in style than Michael’s, which sometimes look like jagged tears across the page. The brothers often travel in a pack of two. They want you to remember that they’re two different people, even as some part of your dumb lizard brain can’t stop noticing that they look exactly alike.
