Choi's poetry exists at the intersection of politics, sexuality, and identity, particularly through the lens of the "cyborg" Turing testing itself and asking questions which relate to its and human senses of self. Often the poems are jarring, sometimes brimming with violence or sex or the potential for either. This is ambitious, challenging poetry on the edge of contemporary culture. Recommended.

I really loved Franny Choi‘s chapbook DEATH BY SEX MACHINE, and this new collection seems to take the ideas there and extend them. There are voiceless robots, tentacled monsters, internet trolls, bodies in many configurations. I feel like what these poems are doing is looking at the ways we are (or are made) opaque to each other, and then reaching through that, exposing interiority in ways that feel sometimes monstrous and sometimes intimate.
