Still the Red is a collection of lyric, imagistic poems that wrestles with the flashy nature and fantastic sensations of corporality. Accessing imagery from the circus, ecology, theology, and memory, these poems ask about the mutability, integrity, and discreteness of a body in the physical world, and wonder about its impermanence. Dense sonic ornamentation aurally reflects the showy spectacle of a circus. In form, these poems enact the intuitiveness and physicality that their content explores.
