Daniel Borzutzky, whose work Eileen Myles calls "violent, perverse, tender," offers a bracing new book that confronts violent action, from state sponsored torture and the bombing of civilians and other "non-essential personnel" to the collapse of the global economy, the barbarism of corporate greed, data fascism, and the deaths of immigrants attempting to cross borders. His book confronts the various horrors of our contemporary landscape through a poetry that literalizes violence, that seeks to find emotional connection and personal meaning in a world that is always exploding.
