Lucifer

A Hagiography

Lucifer is on a non-linear trajectory, revolving its readers through the profane and the pious swinging door of heaven and earth. Memmer's collection, with a few pitches and an unexpected saint we can all root for, has the power to provoke, enlighten and unsettle. The paradox remains the same-so much is at stake in these poems, and so little-but Memmer has managed to give us an original and remarkable passageway. —M. L. Smoker
