YOU DA ONE

Front Cover
Noemi Press, Jul 15, 2017 - Poetry - 142 pages
Poetry. This new edition includes interruptions that focus on dismantling rape culture. "By turns violent, political, romantic, incestual, cerebral, bodily, and personal, this second full-length from Tamayo (RED MISSED ACHES) bears the formal markings of the hypermodern in its deployment of digital, pop, and intertextual elements. Written after her first trip back to her native Colombia in 25 years, the book is indebted to Rihanna, Barthes, and Aim C saire, whose texts she mines voraciously. Those influences, as well as the spectres of Alfred Molina and the author's father, haunt the page, intermixed with screen captures, cheap internet advertising, deliberate misspellings, and pun-ridden Spanglish."--Publishers Weekly
