Awake to the strangeness

Young poet Kayo Chingonyi has reviewed The Terrors over at Todd Swift’s poetry blogzine Eyewear. Kayo has lots of nice, and incisive, things to say about the pamphlet, such as:

[The] satirical look at the consolation offered by notoriety after death not only brings into focus our morbid fascination with those who teeter at the precipice but also the human need for recognition.

This sequence announces a poet awake to the strangeness thrown up by flights of imagination which variously place the snappy media-speak of our information age aside the gratuitous crime reportage of 18th century London.
