Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Taking Walt Whitman's Civil War poems as an inspiration, Rob Halpern's MUSIC FOR PORN moves across the landscape of battlefields and homoerotic affect in an encompassing engagement of desire and death. Halpern work, constructed of poetry and lyric prose, evinces a world in which the physical and linguistic body are permeated by, and implicated in, the globalized maneuvers of modern warfare and capitalist endeavor. This collection is a bracing lyrical exploration of the ethical limits of our militarized and eroticized landscape. "Rob Halpern's body of work in toto constitutes a rigorous intervention into the normative grammar of lyricism"—Tyrone Williams.
