Reviews
Parades forges a new language (think Rimbaud s colored vowels pushed even further and then back into a futurity where antiquity and the almost here collide). Parades has its characters, locales, things, machines, and methods, all turning into one another Georgia becomes ginger, April becomes Uptron, and a puppet (part baboon) that forms its own cocoon is perhaps the best trope for the whole book. A politics dives and surfaces where what was once waste finds new use: life coming up from a gap in the floor. Gillian Conoley, judge of the Omnidawn Poetry Chapbook Contest"
