VEI on Constant Critic

Karla Kelsey on Violet Energy Ingots:

“The poems themselves are violet energy ingots, a series of tenuous knowing moments that eschew the monumental gestures of narrative, polemic, or other familiar forms our cultures have made to mark modernity’s abuses of power. Monumental gestures that give us something to say when asked for an account.

Instead, the poems take up the work of showing the way that the very fabric of the daily, of language, and of our selves are marked by historical trauma.”
