I’m interested in how she fucks with theoretical concepts by making them interfere with the “lowbrow,” but her strategy ultimately reveals itself—approximately half of the poem will be interested in making or unmaking meaning, and the other half will be jumbled, magnet-poetry nonsense strewn with cunts and dicks and semen and blowjobs and shit-taking and shit-eating and vomiting and vomit-eating and bleeding.
