Bedtime Stories for the End of the World
Bloof Books 2014
This is a collection in which the synaptic leaps have their own synaptic leaps. In direct confrontation with neoliberalism, Borzutzky holds nothing back. His verse levels the page like a chainsaw, leaving the surreal, bloodied and bare.
“At times like this he thinks: I can say just about anything right now.
This is, after all, a bedtime story for the end of the world.
I am moving beneath ground and not sleeping and trying to cross the border from one sick part of the world to another”
Prepare to be altered by these poems.
