Poetry. California Interest. Dwelling in the interstices, IN BRAZEN FONTANELLE AFLAME is an ornate collapse, a sumptuous yet horrified exploration of the violence inhered in specific landscapes and ecosystems by the logics of capital. It is an attempt to resist what Lisa Robertson calls "the language of genocide" by mirroring, perverting, and subverting that language. Perhaps most importantly, its poetry is a call to bust forth and out against systems of oppression in a "palatial, treasonous moiré."
