In this long-awaited follow-up to "Crush, " Siken turns toward the problems of making and representation, in an unrelenting interrogation of our world of doublings. In this restless, swerving book simple questionssuch as, "Why paint a bird?"are immediately complicated by concerns of morality, human capacity, and the ways we look to art for meaning and purpose while participating in itsand our owninvention.* "Slippery, magnetic riffs on the arbitrary divisions made by the human mind in light of the mathematical abstractions that delete them- poetry lovers will want to read.""Library Journal," starred review"[P]oems of passion, examining what it means to love, to be, and to create.""Vanity Fair""Siken s stark, startling collection focuses tightly on both the futility and the importance of creating art.""Booklist" Poems primarily about painting and representation give way to images that become central characters in a sequence of fable-like pieces. Animals, landscapes, objects, and an array of characters serve as sites for big, human questions to play out in distilled form. Siken s sense of line has become more uniform, this steadiness punctuated by moments of cinematic urgency.
