"Sexy, telegraphic, edgy, and rapt
.Exquisitely visual, cuttingly witty, Moore's poems are at once cool and searing."Booklist
In her third collection, Honor Moore returns to the charged territory of her earlier poems. Here, erotic and almost surreal lyrics, dreamlike meditations, and a sequence of elegies create what Jorie Graham calls "a searing exploration of exposureas the concept impacts all stages of human life and also death."
"These poems . . . spin themselves out of a centrifuge of hypnotic reverie and desire. They are as intense in unfurling the colors of seduction as they are in shading the darker, more inflected, hues of elegy. Grief and desire flow together here, becoming a single mesmerizing red-blue flame." Carol Muske-Dukes
