Poetry. "Paolo Javier's 60 LV BO(E)MBS is one of the most radically detourned poetics that I've encountered in a long time. Rocking hard the perimeter of a national American literary metabolic center, Javier deftly develops what critical theorists have only been able to talk about: the birth of a non-idealist anticipatory-resilient para-national subject. His poetry engenders a polysemic motility that gives inner-life to this new state of 'independence'. What does that mean? It means your kolonial momma's got your poppa's digits-'by the products'"--Rodrigo Toscano. Javier is also the author of THE TIME AT THE END OF THIS WRITING, also available from SPD.
