a| "His territory is [where] passion and eloquence collide and fuse."--The New York Times. "Richard Siken writes about love, desire, violence, and eroticism with a cinematic brilliance and urgency."--Huffington Post. "Richard Siken's debut, Crush, won the Yale Younger Poets' Prize, sold over 20,000 copies, and earned him a devoted fan-base. In this much-anticipated second book, Richard Siken seeks definite answers to indefinite questions: what it means to be called to make--whether it is a self, love, war, or art--and what it means to answer that call. In poems equal parts contradiction and clarity, logic and dream, Siken tells the modern world an unforgettable fable about itself. The Museum: 'Two lovers went to the museum and wandered the rooms. He saw a painting and stood in front of it for too long. It was a few minutes before she realized he had gotten stuck. He was stuck looking at a painting. She stood next to him, looking at his face and then the face in the painting. What do you see? she asked. I don't know, he said. He didn't know. She was disappointed, then bored. He was looking at a face and she was looking at her watch. This is where everything changed.' Richard Siken works as a social worker, dealing primarily with developmentally disabled adults. He is a poet, painter, and co-founded and currently edits the magazine Spork. He lives in Tucson, Arizona"-- c| Provided by publisher.
