In Corey Van Landingham’s Antidote, love equates with disorder, valediction is a touch activity, the moon is a lunatic, and an individual is usually staring at. the following the uncanny coexists with the non-public, in order that each one poem undergoes making and unmaking, is birthed and certain in an acute strangeness. Elegy is made new by means of a speaker either heartbreaking and transgressive. Van Landingham unearths the instability of self and notion in states of grief; she isn't really afraid to tip the realm the wrong way up and shake it out, assemble the lint and alter from its wallet and say, “I could make anything with this.”


Wild and surreal, pushed by way of loss, Antidote invitations either the gorgeous and the brutal into its fingers, taking into account surprising declarations approximately love: that it's like hibernation, a automobile crash, or a parasite. Time, geography, and panorama are known as into query as backdrops for varied different types of valediction. It quickly turns into transparent that there's no antidote you can actually take for grief or heartbreak; that love can, from time to time, consider like violence; and that one may well by no means recuperate at asserting goodbye.
