Take a bit of grim, a pinch of wit, and a heap of whimsy, and The Politics of Being Ugly will burst forth from whatever cauldron you are making this bizarre brew in. Featuring a band of sweetly pathetic characters, this collection of modern fables goes from a bellybutton rebellion to romance on Pluto. With simultaneously grotesque and loveable losers, the poems take you through the mythical and the everyday to a place of harsh, hilarious and uncanny reality.
I stitched together blood vessels peeled from the walls of your heart and made a quilt to pass on to my grandchildren.
