Poetry. "All 'this shining and this flutter [!].' TERMINAL HUMMING is a very exciting book and I love it. Eavesdropping and borrowing from diverse discourses, K. Lorraine Graham has created a complex 'essay on scrounging.' It is a wonderfully violent 'attempt to unleash inner badness' in poems that are hot and audacious, in a girly way: 'Wonder Woman boots twirl twirl.' TERMINAL HUMMING is just the right amount of weird. In it, 'kinks become beautiful and obvious,' and 'language [hums] as angry form.' Read this 'downwind chess urine bird bathing extravaganza' of a book!"—Nada Gordon.


K. Lorraine Graham is a writer and visual artist. She is the author of TERMINAL HUMMING (Edge Books, 2009) and THE REST IS CENSORED (Coconut Books, 2015). After a decade in California and an MFA at the University of California San Diego, she lives in Washington, DC, again. Wherever she lives, she lives with Lester Young, a pacific parrotlet.
