I read Ms Loudon's book start to finish and here's what I noticed:
* Her writing is outrageous. And I mean that as a compliment.
* The first half of the book, leading up to the title poem-sequence, is dark and sexy to the point of claustrophobia. Like flesh-gobbets draped, rotting and raining on a beautiful nude.
* Also, each of the poems has the feel of a crime study. Little crimes. Small dioramas and dissections. Yes. Dark and delicious.
* Regarding the poems after the 'Cadaver Dogs' poem-sequence — a poem I know I will read over again and again — it's like a switch is flipped and the light comes on but the feel is all swimmy and strange, as if under fluorescents, alienating and disconcerting, and any minute a creature with huge black irises will suddenly come out from behind the office closet door.
* I read sections from 'Cadaver Dogs' out to my S.O. and it felt good in my mouth. Yum. 'I'm eating poetry.'
