The Meatgirl Whatever free pdf

Winner of the National Poetry Series.

The poems in Kristin Hatch's debut collection ooze with the viscus of shattered reality. Bodily, almost animalistic, they flirt with apocalypse, accumulate like diary entries from a madman's kitchen where knife blades hover near the jugular. "This is a documentary," writes K. Silem Mohammad, who selected this book for the National Poetry Series, "or these poems are promotional cartoon avatars, installations of a longer, live-action Emmy-winning series in which glee and melancholy, revulsion and beauty, lyric and satire, living flesh and chopped-up meat combine in sinister gurlesque fantasia." A terrifying and necessary first book.

From "annunciation":

"bent, he talked me through all my tied, big like i was kansas or a diagram sketched with arrows pointing to my special parts with "trick" and "murder" spelled out in clean, legible type. his documentary voice uncled at my ankles."

"my legs folded back for him
