Poetry. BODY LANGUAGE, a collection of prose poetry unique both in content and design, is actually two books—"Primer" and "Body"—bound "tete-beche" (sometimes called a "flip book," as it has two front covers). Together the books form a diptych investigating the body in language and language in the body-"a provocative, loopic continuum," says Lisa Russ Spaar, "in which prose poems "defining" body parts (The Spleen, The Pituitary Gland, The Pimple, The Thumb) mesh with an abecedarium/cipher concerning topics as various as fate, reality, and phenomenology. With its trope of clue-like instruction and unique, flip-book embodiment, BODY LANGUAGE creates a kind of hybrid detective f(r)iction, an intrepid mash-up of high and low cultures in which the reader is as likely to encounter Rilke and Proto-Sinaitic inscription as Lacan, Film Noir, The Three Stooges, cell phones, higher mathematics, binary thought, and Coyote and Road Runner cartoons."
