Exposition Park

In this collection of poems, a diorama of transhistorical artifacts offers new life to voluptuous lyric forms. These poems are inspired by disparate mediums and events that span the world fairs of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the transatlantic passage from New Spain to the Americas, collaborative entanglements with art and performance, as well as the poet’s trademark figures of intimacy. This collection rushes forth in playful syntax. Ornate sounds pulse and waver between opaque intellectualizations of industry, along with corporeal hauntings that resonate from the past.
