K.I. Press explores the very human desire for intimacy in her riveting poetry collection Exquisite Monsters. Unlike other poets who might have chosen to use flowery language as they explore the depths of the human psyche, Press’s writing seems jarring at first. She juxtaposes topics such as motherhood and mourning with bizarre imagery and metaphors. From quirky pop culture facts to biomechanical androids, Press is fearlessly and unashamedly weird. However, if you stick with her bizarre collection, you’ll soon discover how she combines such disjointed topics into one whole. With vicious wit and a deft hand, Press takes her readers on a dark journey through our desire for intimacy.
