Failure to Thrive PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Failure to Thrive free pdf Dumpster fires outside discount stores and rotting whale carcasses- optical illusions and memento mori--all "coming to you direct, / by way of this Rube Goldberg machine." "Failure to Thrive" zigzags through excess, taking in the big picture through the lens of a pinhole camera. These poems ask us to lean into our senses, to "spend time loitering, slipping coins into attention's slots, / anticipating the next big pay-off." Hip and cerebral, this witty collection is as quick to make fun of itself as it is to turn its humour outward, where false historians have free rein, answers come in the form of questions, and the apocalypse seems like a good time to knit a sweater. Suzannah Showler's debut shows us how a failing world can be the site of aesthetic renewal rather than decline.
