bodys is a collection of prose poems. It loosens the voice from the body. It is a heart attack.
“In this inventive and arrestingly funny debut, Roveto unequivocally makes the familiar strange as she places human bodies in a seemingly endless array of contexts to produce striking and even disturbing juxtapositions. Through imaginative poems linked by voice and theme, Roveto takes the spectacle of modern consumption and flips it all upside-down.”—starred review, Publishers Weekly
