The Meatgirl Whatever. [National Poetry (Fence Books)]

Hatch, Kristin

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.
