About the Book

"Housekeeping"
Tepid blow cools the liquid to hunch and wind. A box
arrives and loaded spills order across the Jloor. Living room,
dining room, room of tinder and kindling. The joints grind
to aspirin under the whitest application. At night I place oil
over all the door hooks to make for swifter leaving.
Kerosene opening , I saw it coming and took Jlight.

About the Book

Generous, penetrating, relentlessly sonic poems that record the creative potential of the body and the boundaries of the self.
