The 2007 Kimmy Beach model, in Cars, is a crowd-pleasing look at the lives of rural teenagers in western Canada, and includes a free-wheeling tour of love, cars, and roller rinks.As the speakers pound out instantly recognizable hits of the eighties, Beach looks under the hood of female desire. Wearing string-back driving gloves, hands at two and ten o'clock, she investigates our fascination with cars and the way they crash. Wearing her white Sure-Grip high-tops roller skates with Precision Bearing wheels, Beach blows smoke in the face of the poetry establishment.Standard features of in Cars include youthful lust and squealing tires, muscle cars and disco balls. Optional extras include style, smarts, and Fancy Ass Cars showcases an unmistakeably original poetic voice. Kimmy Beach, the reigning poet of pop/mainstream culture, pops the clutch with this exploration of the nexus of libido, danger, and the darkness at the centre of attraction.
Kimmy Beach is the author of four poetry collections: Nice Day for Murder: Poems for James Cagney, alarum within: theatre poems, fake Paul, and in Cars. She has an honours degree in English from the University of Alberta. Kimmy lives in Red Deer, Alberta with her husband.
