He grieves for the children in cages and the martyrs of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburg. But pulsing amid Borzutzky's outrage over In Written after a Massacre, Daniel Borzutzky rages against the military industrial complex that profits from violence, against the unfair policing of certain kinds of bodies, against xenophobia passing for immigration policy.

    I look at Borzutzky's growing body of work as exactly that: one singular growing body of work. His books melt and seep and trickle into his other books, full of ghosts from previous breaths. A poet of repetition, barbarianism, politics, economics, and so much more. This book is a violent nightmare full of bodies and place. It wants so badly to shake and slap the hate out of this wasteland. I look at Borzutzky's growing body of work as exactly that: one singular growing body of work.

    Just absolutely, breathtakingly wonderful. Borzutsky’s command of language and vocabulary is among the greatest of all time. Probably one of the most important things I’ve ever read. Marines medicate mothers and mix their milk with mononucleosis. Millionaires multiply in the machinery of mourning, manufacturing mausoleums for martyred Marxists in Mercedes. Middle managers mistake manipulative merchants for munificent moralists. A military massacre on the municipal motorway is like a military massacre Just absolutely, breathtakingly wonderful.

Middle managers mistake manipulative merchants for munificent moralists. A military massacre on the municipal motorway is like a military massacre on the municipal motorway. Metaphysical mayors mediate the mythology of mystical markets while monitoring the murders of migrants. My mouth is filled with worms.

    This was released during the covid isolation, and I was able to attend two zoom book releases. The first included guest poets Edwin Torres and Cecilia Vicuna. Cecilia Vicuna gave an incredible reading of a couple of Daniel Borzutzky's poems. Look for it on YouTube. This book is divided into three sections, the third from which the title is taken is most moving and powerful to me. Also, read the author's end note which begins: "We live in a country of massacre, shaped by a history of white-suprema This was released during the covid isolation, and I was able to attend two zoom book releases.

Also, read the author's end note which begins: "We live in a country of massacre, shaped by a history of white-supremacist massacre, of police-and-state massacre, that rages on into the present. Daniel Borzutzky is a truth teller.
