Body? Or not body? Mine? Or yours? Touch? Or sensual departure? Pornograph is a collection of poetry and prose poems that grabs at the physical alienation that occurs between the act of naming and the physical body. It poetically investigates the technologizing of the North American body, of the body at rest, of the body in palpable motion. This book rubs up against the catagories, shuffles the cue cards, slides the body between nouns and adjectives, between verbs and exclamation marks.

What defines, surrounds and controls the body? Fashion, medical language, advertising lingo, the language of sexuality? Perhaps. Or perhaps the body breaks loose from the sentence and from the page-from the text itself-inviting the reader to come play, to misbehave, to forget the self, to transform the language itself.
