Overflow is poetry akin to a psychic intervention. The mise-en-scène of BGK’s newest collection is the daily life, struggles, and creative process of the poet delivered as a surreal spate of meditations in metaphorical form and sometimes blisteringly honest confession. Each piece screws with the senses with its bright dark humor, unpredictable pacing, styles, and incisive clarity served up with jokes on you and everyone you’ve ever known.
Also known as I’m In Your Area, these haikuesque poems, solely written on napkins in a bar, into the hundreds, is some of BGK’s finest work—diving into the ocean of human experience… best when placed next to Bukowski, Kerouac, and Brautigan…
For years she did not make herself known. Then—mist, wind, form. Terra. Brainstorm poems that weave in and out of consciousness, confidence, self-slaughter, non-self barrels of laughter. Every ascender and descender contains a world, so by the time you get to the end, reread it.
