Poetry. "Trujillo Lusk's monstrous and witty verbal assault on history and society uses as pivots the various stigmata of single-parenthood, poverty, and institutional negotiation, all the while chanelling every strand of modernism and modernity through a mind that refused the indignity of high-school graduation. The spines of these poems seem each to possess an extra, mutant vertebra that breaks loose from lyric's ghostly theremin to become an unruly daughter shooting darts from harp strings. Careful you could loose an eye. You could be a bull's-eyed target, you schmuck"-Kevin Davies.

Like fellow linguistic traveler Jean Day, Lusk, in this second full-length book, further turns a carefully wounded discursive preciosity into an amazingly powerful critical and aesthetic tool, as deeply rewarding as it is fun to read.
