J. Moxley's Clampdown

That "Clampdown" is an incredible book - rhetorical, somehow distanced and utterly present in each of its extended scenarios and musings...this is major poetry. Her poem "The Occasion" encapsulates like nothing else I've read what it was like to live through the Bush era. This stands along Dugan's "When McCarthy Was a Wolf Among a Nation of Queer Queers" as a depiction of some history. Just breathtaking work.
