So begins acclaimed poet Peter BD's dizzying journey into the depths of the textual Self, in which reflexive phrases play off one another like a thousand points of light shining through a fifth of cognac and illume the striving and conniving which defines our current moment.

Buoyant humor and steely irony mix together to form a wild combination which goes down easy but lingers with you for the rest of the day.
