Kristen Stone's breathless, contained poetry and prose is absolutely phenomenal.

Kristen engages the domestication of the little girl animal as well as the domestication of the queer animal, and the wildness of youth, suburbia, first love, car rides, county fairs, animal death, touching bodies and everything in between.

Read it once and then read it again and let the words trip your heartbeat and twist your stomach.
Absolutely brilliant!

Shelves: poetry
Turned out to be, for me, far too much statement/theory...not enough poetry. Still, interesting, bizarre. Worth a look.

"Just playing is dangerous, with horns."

"Wrinkled hands, tattoos under her tights -- if I couldn't be warm I wanted poetry."
