Poetry. Written through a dark time, Curry's poems in OUR CHROME ARMS OF GYMNASIUM navigate, as she says, "sexual communication and logic and the breakdown that occurs when people are perceiving different realities and trying to make sex, love and relationships work." She approaches this cavernous struggle with, in her words, "glee and mania" and breathes a fresh breath into formal meter.
