From the Publisher
Reginald Shepherd: "In Julianne Buchsbaum's dense, laconic poems, poise solicits passion and urgency courts elegance. Her rich, lucid, alliterative lexicon, full of apt surprise and happily astray amid the glitter of evidence, makes a dictionary of the small parts of world and the larger parts those parts make ('some country / we were meant to wake into'), 'uttering things that people usually keep / to themselves.' And love is never far from the parted lips, in all its errors and ecstasies."

THE VOODOO THAT YOU DO
Dolls understand the pseudo-problems
of zombies--their devices are dresses,
daylight, and dialogue. Dolls siphon off
the subject, feedings its dreams with chiffon.
They teeter on the edge o windows in which we insert consciousness, false hopes
for a new museum, false hopes for dawn.
Polstyrene dolls can only map inputs
of extreme summer, the taxidermy,
torqued pelt of a fox behind plexiglas.
The zombie into which daylight erupts is
the surface where death becomes a given.
Dreams are massive temples of experience
into which zombie philosophers irrupt."
The darkness of many of these poems only serve to make the radiance of their body more radiant. This collection isn't experimentalism entirely: we get to know the poet on a myriad of levels. A must read.
