By Jan Conn

"Every drawer in each chest overflows with illogic and passion." "Do we'd like love each day of our lives?" Jan Conn asks in a poem known as Michoac'n. "You wager your ass," she solutions. The poems of Botero's appealing Horses are charged with otherness, shiny with the excitement and risk of transformation. Many are descriptions of surrealist canvases, astonishingly kinetic narratives composed via having a look tough at strange photos, the artists' writings and their conditions; and allowing them to converse for themselves. The ebook turns into a trip clear of the known into different cultures, in particular Latin American. Poem after poem gathers a feeling of internal in addition to outward trip clear of a dangerous early life; right into a huge global wealthy and weird with a recurrent underworld motif of darkness, blackness. yet what a black! wealthy and diverse, existence as though seen within the "obsidian mirrors the Aztecs formed from the dark."Colours the Aztecs invented: eagle-devouring-snake black expansionist black dried-blood black. They enjoyed the evening creatures: owls, scorpions, bats, the Queen of Spiders." --from "People of the Left-Sided Hummingbird." "Jan Conn is a Dali with a scalpel of phrases, with colourwheels for eyes. To learn her is to think alive, occasionally flayed, yet consistently held in a lush dream replete with natural world every piece as magical as they're actual. She is accomplishing an operation of intelligence and commentary, a taxonomy of the senses cooked over flames of artwork, embracing the cultures of the Americas."--Marilyn Bowering
