Flammable Matter

Winner of the Elixir Press Editor's Prize FOR POETRY

"Victorine wants to bear witness, and to make bare his voice so that oppressed bodies might, before they give way, give testimony. He knows that his speakers are striving, urgent, and aflame. Therefore, he writes more than elegy, more than remnants of bone and ash; he writes his speakers in the midst of living, in the midst of living trauma."  

-CM Burroughs, author of The Vital System
