By Craig Blais

An unsentimental and every now and then disquieting first assortment, the poems of About Crows excavate self, kin, race, situation, intercourse, artwork, and faith to discover the artifacts of a succession of traumas that the speaker doesn't continually event firsthand yet incorporates with him to refashion into a few new significance. this can be a booklet of half-states, damaged affiliations, and dislocation.

            The speaker leads the reader during the fragments of a flooded city that grows more and more elusive the extra one appears to be like for it; via a succession of Seoul "love inns" that extra displace the outsider to unclaimed margins reworked into websites of artistic invention; via "galleries" of art, the place stream, colour, and photo are renewed via ekphrasis; and during the area of the metatextual lengthy poem "The Cult Poem," the place solid and undesirable ethical binaries tangle right into a rat's nest of our greatest and worst non secular ambitions.

            The poems and sequences of About Crows are marked via their creative stability of the elegant and the profane, of polyphony, syntactical complexity, clashing photographs, cagey humor, and unsettling sincerity, all attempting desperately to connect.
