29. Black-Eyed Heifer, Shelly Taylor

Tarpaulin Sky Press

“…when you sell a horse he will not come back.”

Shelly Taylor’s debut is a symphony of language, association, deconstruction. The poet’s associations and ideation make her seem completely mad at times, but a persistent homey quality makes us follow her from move to move with total fascination. We are led somewhere, and led, and led back. Nothing is traditional, nothing old fashioned; everything is strange.
