This powerful anthology succeeds at intimately showing.disability through the lenses of poetry. What emerges from the book as a whole is a stunningly diverse array of conceptions of self and other.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

From Beauty and Variations by Kenny Fries:

How else can I quench this thirst? My lips
travel down your spine, drink the smoothness

of your skin. I am searching for the core:
What is beautiful? Who decides? Can the laws

of nature be defied? Your body tells me: come
close. But beauty distances even as it draws

me near. What does my body want from yours?
My twisted legs around your neck. You bend

me back. Even though you can't give the bones
at birth I wasn't given, I let you deep inside.
