 About the Book 

Poetry. Amy Kings mercurial poems capture the instability of cultural, sexual, and poetic identity. In the circuitry of her illuminated, incongruous, but somehow perfectly apt details, the alien befits us. With a nod to Gertrude Stein andMorePoetry. Amy Kings mercurial poems capture the instability of cultural, sexual, and poetic identity. In the circuitry of her illuminated, incongruous, but somehow perfectly apt details, the alien befits us. With a nod to Gertrude Stein and Fernando Pessoa, as well as cameos by Frida Kahlo, Maya Deren, and Claude Cahun, Amy celebrates the roles of women even as she redefines them, telling us: I put on my long black dream/to live among my female brothers. Playful, provocative, and frenetically lyrical, this is metamorphic poetry for our times--Elaine Equi. We are not / a great many things, while in fact we are the functions / of those things, and without them, / we are less and more than ever. You see, theres an underbelly that needs to be got to, and IM THE MAN WHO LOVES YOU is all about it. Each detail in an Amy King poem seems a world in itself. & its not like youve never seen details like these. & its not like you have either--Rod Smith.
