Description

Poetry. Sharon Mesmer is not only provocative, but also confrontational in her new book of poems, ANNOYING DIABETIC BITCH. The namesake poem appears first in the book and screams curses and prideful incantations regarding the diabetic condition at its audience. The book is divided into eight sections riddled with shocking images like a little white boy shooting "a rather alarming streak of pee into the nose of Jesus" while one poem asks the question "Who Put the Frog in Grandma's Shit?" With an imagination driven by a raw and bestial point of view, Mesmer aggressively takes her reader into a world in which the laws of conduct do not apply, and the reader is all the more pleased with their findings. Sharon Mesmer is "always interesting, beautifully bold and vivaciously modern"--Allen Ginsberg.
