‘This pamphlet pinches the skin of woman, of lust, of politics.’ Deanna Rodger
‘These poems reveal a mind breaking through multiple layers of silencing, stigma and shame.’ Dean Atta
Phoebe Wagner’s poetry is a kind of undressing. Offering up the social and sexual uncertainties of our time, she forges these into a bolder understanding of contemporary angst. Language heady as Plath melts into a precise, Carson-like wit.
Formally inventive, highly visual, these poems ripple through the mind, at once cleansing and intoxicating. Wagner’s voice is a reflexive one, referencing therapists, care plans, bingo tickets, pick-up lines, familial myths:
Abuela knew I was the devil when I came out like that.
That all of Spain had bled out of me.
