    You are a child pulling your lips back from your teeth in the mirror Two fingers deep along the side of your cheeks and pull, pull, pull until you see the bones of your face, the skull that lurks behind your eyes.You re dying Doesn t everybody know it Nov 2013 TheI re read this, the better I like it and theI find myself thinking about this.

    Raw, dazzling and utterly brave, this book stole my breath I devoured it in one sitting, and emerged shaken and reborn These poems shook loose poems that were lodged inside me, and gave them wings It s that powerful.

    I read Proxy in the midst of a flurry of other books, each which shared something in common, while trying to understand another piece of work altogether It would seem to be easy to forget the Proxy in the midst of that rush, or to have instrumentalized it since I was looking for something else But R Erica Doyle doesn t allow us to take the work for granted Gnarly Sexual Sensual Adamant Without apology and not needing one.

    An enticingly told narrative in prose poems, a love story between two women, very visceral and bodily and sexy, and what I really loved was the language I felt like I was in a new, familiar unfamiliar place __ Fall Be still and counter the trick you ve played on your ears.__ Time is draped across the door She calls You made a horrible mistake Between you the golden thread shines It s made of blood and hope You drag yourself along its solid length.

    you came to do an autopsy and at the first excision found a beating heart well it was beating, but it stopped.
