Description

THRESH: to beat mechanically, to drub to whip. Thresh is a sensual linguistic trip through the daily violence of affluence. Voyeuristic and punishing the language in this collection addresses the unlikely mechanistic rumblings of the sex doll factory floor; the progress of the Stations of the Cross; and the intricacies and polarities of female purification. Each poem lovingly hammers, pounds, teases and scratches at the fallacies of control and ownership. “ready? flail.”
