Read full description of the books Hecate Lochia:

Hecate Lochia was a surprise & shot of slightly bitter warmth. Hoa writes about the quotidian, the domestic circuit and the flashes of news/information that saturate/distend it in a terse, matter of fact way that I haven't seen in awhile
"I'm driving from the back seat / have to dive over the back seat"
I think of Paul Blackburn's hanging around the house, walking around poems. There is probably a better analogy. The difference is that there isn't a lyric thread to string together the scattershot observation and only a subterranean, murky rhythm to their composition.

The fissure between "The news pictures the beheaded defense contractor / wearing a cowboy hat" and the ensuing "6 eggs fell today / (toddler accident)" is a true one. Nguyen isn't trying to draw lines of causality. One end-stopped fragment does not particularly illuminate the other. This has a tremendous leveling effect, so one has got to take the poems piece by piece

"Instead / I smear the stove with avocado"

And risk finding oneself stranded in mined out territory

"Driving a hole / in the ozone layer"

One of my favorite poems begins w/

"The Starbucks mermaid logo / has lost her nipples"

& ends w/

"We put the poopy blocks / outside and then it rained."

This is a book to get yrself grounded--back into the plain objects and rhythms of daily life: eat, travel, watch, purchase, poopy blocks. Thanks to the Baltimore Book club for helping to get these thoughts in order. Baltimore, where is Kegasus?
