The ordinary becomes the extraordinary in K. I. Press's latest collection of poems, Exquisite Monsters. Filled with gods, monsters, saints and small children, Press draws together myth, magic and the forces of science Press to examine the power of creation and the creatures that lie beneath the skin. She peers into our blood and bones and teases out the beasts that bury themselves inside our minds. With precision, K. I. Press conjures fantastic images and constructs an elegant poetic machine for her readers.
