Thomas Moore's Skeleton Costumes is a collection of three line poems fixated on articulations of queer desire that are steeped in deviance, depression, and digital detachment. Each poem is a snapshot that lunges out to bite you but allows its fangs to linger. Macabre images of webcam broadcast snuffy suicides and dismemberment, maladjusted violent love notes, and ominously cryptic terse confessions make for a powerful book. Even though some of these short poems rely on hackneyed phrases, the images that border and precede and succeed these either overshadow them or distort them in interesting ways. An unsettling but beautiful collection of poems.
