Obscenity for the Advancement of Poetry (Paperback)
obscenity for the advancement of poetry is both manifesto and tragedy. It carves up the shallow misperceptions of being queer; female; human; other] and exposes the viscera of perpetual becoming that is who we are and what we mean to each other--as individuals, as citizens, as bodies. Sardonic and sincere, obscenity questions your intentions--and your digressions--and hopes you do, too.
