Siamese twins, circus performers, burn victims, and scientists all clash in this vibrant and vivid collection. Throughout the poems, the experimental voice fills the page with broken lines, jump cuts, and a sense of nervous music. Merging poetry with theoretical science, this work occupies the gap between gravity and escape, residing everywhere from convenience stores and motels to the outer frequencies of space.
