Can the notion of Romantic love withstand our endless postmodern moment? In these extraordinary poems, Kimberly Grey explores our abiding need for neatness, order, and symmetry in matrimony, considering our ideals for love and language in this digital age its weightless, distracting, and inescapable pressures.She portrays the ways in which love reflects us back to ourselves: familiar but strange, predetermined but new. There is a drop of blue light, she writes. But no high-tech way / to say you re mine. No way to love / each other but with these ancient bodies."
