Inventing new poetics as she goes, Moss applies her exhilarating capacity for language to a synthesis of the personal, the historical, and the cultural. She searches searches for vestiges of Deirdre, a beloved cousin who has left the living- for hints of Cindy Song, a college student missing since 2001- and for manifestations of her true self in the archaic wings of science.Moss imagination is, as always, ravenous, interrogative--but in Tokyo Butter there is an urgency amidst the jagged, beautiful verse that has become her trademark.
