PRAISE FOR BURN IT DOWNIn Katie Byrum’s BURN IT DOWN, Shakespeare meets Szymborska meets Frank O’Hara meets ”the Warehouse of Byrum“ to lead us into love’s black humor where ”It’s dangerous to be a human being.“ The speaker here is full of whiskeyMorePRAISE FOR BURN IT DOWNIn Katie Byrum’s BURN IT DOWN, Shakespeare meets Szymborska meets Frank O’Hara meets ”the Warehouse of Byrum“ to lead us into love’s black humor where ”It’s dangerous to be a human being.“ The speaker here is full of whiskey and apology, eros and ”fashionable danger“—she goes to the ”corner store, no panties on,“ pours Drano in her coffee, and fixes her problem ”with more of the same problem,“ aka men.

Tenderness and vulnerability battle it out with bitterness- the result is this exhilarating book, half snow-globe, half gorgeous wary lament.—Catherine BarnettThe language-to-feeling ratio in Katie Byrum’s BURN IT DOWN is just about perfect. Her ear for the music of speech is in sync with her passionate curiosity about the abandonments and fulfillments of domestic love and erotic life. The quiet charm and sophistication of a line like ”On the hotel’s quilted bed / Adam reclines, eating cookies / in the late Etruscan style,“ finds its extravagant counterpart in her homage to Catullus: ”Whether I will be gadabout, vagabond, magnet, / or dig down to the innermost spot where the core wound booms, / as Pacific surf hits black cliffs...“ Always linguistically alive, these poems are inventive and authentic in what they feel.—Tom Sleigh
