Hot With the Bad Things Review

  • Kathleen

    "The novelist writes, 'There is no good language when it comes to the unspeakable.' Instead, I write truly bad poems about the husk of my insides fallen out.My friend gently rearranges commas, asks me to consider the Bachelard, then Dictee. She tells me to burn then bury it. It's taken so long to get to magic. I wasn't even desperate then.In the bad dream, I walk to the room and sit behind a desk, noting shifts or is altered, furthest reaches of imagination falter."

    This collection swallows one whole: fierce & blunt & raw about the way we talk about girls/women, sex/sexuality, violence & relationships, our own bodies, ourselves. LoTempio’s poems challenge, push, question, and reflect. A masterful first collection.

    In this unsparing, unapologetic collection of poems, Lucia LoTempio addresses violence against women in intricate, powerful, and potent form and language. Hard to read at times, this is a phenomenal volume. CW: violence, rape

    This is one of the tightest, most electrifying, most breath-taking books I've ever read.
