The second Frances Jaffer Book Award winner from this Bay Area feminist collective press well-honors the poet editor of HOW(ever) magazine (for whom the award is named) with this debut from Krupskaya press editor and publisher Saidenberg, a former director of Small Press Traffic. The four disjunctive long poems and series here riff rigorously on ideals gone wrong, on materials that are detritus to some and housing to others, and on Deleuzian thought experiments that might actually help, as in "I Want A Body Without Organs," "a tunnel perhaps. funnily….on the borders and bridges/ the bête noir traversing the 'end'….smile. effective being. predator's warfare."
