In "Proposal For A Third Wife" he tells his beloved that he will flatter and compliment her into a kind of domestic bondage: "I'd mold casings and pour/a compliment of cement over your feet/Then you'd need me/To help you walk inside. I'd show/You floors to clean,/special slippers to wear/Over your cement blocks so/They wouldn't scratch the finish. As the potential finance clunks through the house she passes pictures of other wives and poses for her own portrait. "Be sure to warmly greet the children/who fly past when they hear the familiar thunder/Of blocked feet ascending./Forgive them,/Yet they've heard the noises you'll make."
Matt Jasper writes, "the road to hell is paved with ordinary asphalt" and slows his pace just enough so he can escort you down that street tottering on your own cement block shoes.
I don't read a lot of poetry but I will recommend this to everyone I know. It helps that most of the people I know have some sort of mental illness.
This book speaks to me. Or it whispers. Or is using sign language. Or it is raving. Hell, I don't know anything anymore.
Don't get this book unless you want to see what's behind the curtain. Then, dance as though no one who can have you committed is watching.
