-This astonishing young poet--still in her twenties--is surely destined to be one of the crucial voices of her generation.---Michael Silverblatt, BookwormComposed in the direct, accessible, consciousness-piercing style readers of Ariana Reines' first two books are wildly enamored of, Mercury comprises a group of long poems. These interlocking works speak to the substance and essence of what is said, transmitted, transacted, -communicated- between persons. Reines proposes that substance and essence are opposites, and explores this in contexts including commercial cinema and internet porn.Your music makes me feel lonelyYour music makes me feel lonelyYour musicMakes me feel lonelyPicking a lemonLate at nightMy heart tightensI fear natureYour music makes me feel lonelyI must be responsible for itI'm aliveI have this hair helmet onI'm so aliveI say yes to the megaplexYou say it's awful isn't it awfulI say yeahSo what.
