's review

really liked it

This is the first of three times I'll read Killing Floor this year.

1/3, March: I only permitted myself the indulgence of reading the last poem aloud -- the truth is, every piece in here wants to grab you by the throat, to both throttle and exsanguinate you, and to then write the poem with the leavings of your spit and blood, only maybe saying sorry. I am fascinated by the masks and masking in these dramatic monologues, the form Ai said she was herself most captivated by, most passionately drawn to use. I feel she uses them strangely, fiercely, without remorse.
