Following on her collections Excessive Love Prostheses and Sooner, Margaret Christakos looks at our primal appetite for attachment through the modern norms of codependency and coexistence, taking for granted the postmodern digital era where the tenderness of the individual are both exposed and masqueraded by the brazen and wary stirrings of virtual identity. Often playful but never trifling, Christakos accretes the ecstatic trajectories of lyric poetry, the mundane and intimate extremes of maternal subjectivity, and an abiding curiosity with procedural poetic composition into a wakeful field of linguistic, sensual and acoustic effects.
