Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
In the intimate address of "Axel Avákar," the black humor of "Quarto," and the underground journey of "Powers of Recuperation," compressed lyrics flash among larger scenarios where images, dialogues, blues, and song spiral into political visions. Adrienne Rich has said, "I believe almost everything I know, have come to understand, is somewhere in this book."




from "Ballade of the Poverties"

     There's the poverty of wages wired for the funeral you

     Can't get to the poverty of bodies lying unburied

     There's the poverty of labor offered silently on the curb

     The poverty of yard sale scrapings spread

     And rejected the poverty of eviction, wedding bed out on street

     Prince let me tell you who will never learn through words

     There are poverties and there are poverties.
