Poetry. In Trace Peterson's first collection of poems, SINCE I MOVED IN, "...desire is the restless remainder of body subtracted from voice, or maybe it's voice from body. Whitmanian in its quick and tender grandeur, its penchant for direct address, and its abstract kinkiness and longing, SINCE I MOVED IN moves exorably from the transgendering (non) performance of 'Trans Figures' to the startled, suspended chiliasm of 'Spontaneous Generation,' where at last the fetish body, dispersed into landscape, becomes simply an ambient mode of seeing, or saying, in a post-everything ecology where voice broods over the face of the waters, becoming the (prosthetic) body of the world"--Tenney Nathanson.
