A zodiac that builds poems into horoscope machines, Kabbala, botany, the gnostic gospels, fashion, the plague, and the prophetic writings of a high school friend all contribute to a collection that teeters on the dangerous edge between form and anarchy. DANCE is a precarious and joyful performance that takes the reader on a journey through hell, earth, and paradise. From "Beauvais": "I a maker of beautiful hulls" transformthis multitude of useless bells / "torrent of stones. the cracks are moving" ["paradise, erased in a few hours"]["god's bones, Vision of a pristine skeleton. Vision of hell-- ["And it was marvelous, though sad, to behold"] Lightsey Darst writes, dances, writes about dance and other arts, and teaches. She is the author of a previous collection of poetry, Find the Girl (Coffee House Press, 2010) and numerous dance and book reviews, which you can find at mnartists.org and Bookslut, among other publications.
