Constantine fearlessly embraces a diverse array of styles, from odes to codes, lectures to letters, even tests and attendance sheets, crafting a poetic masterpiece from each. Explore a world where imagination knows no bounds, and every poem becomes a voyage of self-discovery.
"After reading Brendan Constantine's Birthday Girl with Possum/ it becomes clear that he loves the art of poetry so much/ he's probably sleeping with it/ You will live and die by these poems/ though I don't recommend the latter/ Your cat will definitely die/ the dog is not safe/ There is a brain/ It is cracked wide open/ In the space, convention is cherished and not necessary/ In the space you will laugh like you've always been a girl/ It is this space that these poems inhabit/ like undiscovered water between the sand and the oil."
