Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eyelid Lick is borne out of individual psychedelic experience into a world of streaming communication. These loose, runny poems seek intimacy through testimonial. There's the sensation of the lick, and the sensation of being licked, and if both people know each other enough both sides of the lick can be felt.

Assam,

Not hate, not no capability to find them cute, or charming, or things. Because there's going to be a baby in the backyard. And because the lambs hang low in the trees.

I am so not fucking around. Like a name strangling its body, I'll forget it, too. I'll say one thing, and then completely forget it. I'll remind you of something known to everyone: We could have gotten away with so much more.

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2012 Fence Modern Poets Series, this book is charged with ecstatic yet gritty humor and hyperkinetic desire.

Synopsis:

Eyelid Lick is a pop treatise on sustainable communication, on the vital language that can survive outside our dreamy consciousnesses.

These long, loose, sometimes runny poems bear out psychedelic experience; they open like the doors of perception and give onto a vista of communion-through-language. There are speakers and speeches; there is the sensation of the lick, and the sensation of being licked, and if both agents know each other well enough both sides of the lick can be felt by both.

Donald Dunbar, January 5, 2013 (view all comments by Donald Dunbar)
I like this book a lot, but sometimes it wakes me up--I'm not sure it intends to, but I can hear its breathing (maybe its breathing changes? maybe it's just a natural thing?) and my unconscious brain knows that maybe that's not how breathing should sound, or that there's an intent in the breath. I'm never scared waking up like this, at least moreso than I'm scared waking up every morning--like, which-world-is-this kind of scared, -and-will-it-eat-me--and I don't think this book wants to eat me, although it is very good and might be capable of getting through one of my legs before I could stop it. Perhaps it's better not to fall asleep with it on your throat.

I recommend this book for people who are looking for a little more from their books. Sure, you could read some other book and possibly have a nice time, like British people do on sunny days, but if you want the whole religious experience*, I'm not sure you can do better.

Also, we all want love. You will find some here.

*you know the religion I am talking about
