by Casey Rocheteau
"...a thousand-headed beauty lithely slithering from the past, present, and future as it examines the nature and pervasiveness of empire. What's found here in these poems is a study of hucksters, devils, tricksters, and 'Sudden Despot's. Personae get remixed and recontextualized like Donald Trump a la Norma Desmond and Kanye West a la Jim and Alex Jones. Through a myriad of masks, Gorgoneion conjures up evil then stares it down to the realm of the 'marblestuck.' Yes, the acerbic wit and humor we've come to know from Rocheteau's work is present, yet make no mistake, this book holds back nothing in its bite." —Tommye Blount, author of Fantasia for the Man in Blue
