Poetry. In these seventeen poems of sprung rhythms and playful language, the author creates poetic fictions that are witty and hip in the new funk style: "History is a/tiny wrinkle we might as well just/forget about unless/it's going to/save us." The accumulative effect is mysterious, entertaining, and delightful.

"As long as fine literary presses continue to handcraft handsome books like these from Adastra, serious readers of the twenty-first century can rest assured, the book is alive and well"—American Book Review.
