Playfully invading the conventional territories of poetry, Sally Van Doren throws into query shape, material, and the sound and that means of phrases. The poems in intercourse at midday Taxes combine trouble-free narrative, midwestern vernacular, and linguistic ambivalence, embedded during which is a fight among the brain and the physique. whereas one poem admonishes the reader to "Forget the phonics / of the focal/fecal. word, / style, and effuse," in one other the speaker says, "I refine my experience of / discomfort if you contact me / with anything blue." A preoccupation with the visible, artists, and art seeps via a lot of those imagistic minitexts. those poems search for unencumber in descriptions of actual acts and in elaborate manipulations of language. occasionally they locate it: "Along comes the sentence to / get a divorce the monotony of possession." extra usually, even though, the questions they pose withstand solutions: "What extravagant / commodity is sex?" and "Which el- / lipsis omits love?" Gender id blurs because the poems probe theories of articulation and examine the geographies of language and love. via wordplay and notice paintings, those poems commute a tightly crafted sphere of feelings and ideas.
