By Ari Banias
“Ari Banias is likely one of the top dwelling poets, and this ebook on your arms is our evidence. Anybody is the braveness of a poet who trusts the power of poetry to make room in our global for everybody.” —CAConrad
In Anybody, Ari Banias takes up questions of popularity and belonging: how limitations are drawn and controlled, the methods he and she, us and them, here and elsewhere are stored separate, and at what expense identities and selves are solid. relocating via iconic and imagined landscapes, Anybody confronts the strangeness of being alive and of being a restlessly gendered, queer, emotive physique. anyplace the poet turns—the cruising areas of fireside Island, a urban lake, a Greek island, a bodega-turned-coffee-shop—he unearths the cost of boundedness and signification, the consequences of what it potential to be a this rather than a that. Witty, soft, and unique, those poems pierce the constructs that outline our lives.
