Burn

ECW Press, 2000 - Poetry - 111 pages
0 Reviews
Accessible and finely honed, as obsessed with the possibility of words as with emotion, this collection of poems mixes spit and sweat and flakes of lye to scar intricate and beautiful patterns in the shapes of animals, friends, and family. The dark moments of childhood contrast with the epiphanies and horrors of illness and death, all the while sex insinuates and asserts itself, leaving nothing untouched.
