Poetry. Charged with swagger and sensuality, tenderness and cold fact, the tenth Spotlight series installment, HERE COME THE WARM JETS, is the brash debut volume by Bay Area poet Alli Warren. Taking its title from the Brian Eno classic, JETS jumbles gender, class, and space-time perspectives into a chorus of contemporary idioms and lyrical longings. Against the daunting backdrop of twenty-first century consumerism, Warren launches her missives of desire, in writing that is at once raw and sly. From the Bishop of Worms to Flipper to E-40, nobody's safe from the easy virtuosity with which she makes language sing.
