Chris Hosea, Like These Won’t Last, Cut-and-pasted printed papers, ink, lard, and highlighter on corrugated cardboard, 2012, 14.1 x 14 cm.@1 week ago
Making new music from embarrassment, love, sex, and confusion, Put Your Hands In is a lyrical atlas of contemporary heartbreak and ecstasy. As comic as they are discordant, these poems discover unforeseen harmonies everywhere, from Brooklyn dive bars, drone warfare, and love-at-first-sight to the utopias of the ninety-nine percent. Put Your Hands In is a paper machine with unlimited battery life—a compact jukebox, kaleidoscope, and mirror in which you will recognize heretofore unknown aspects of yourself.
