    This collection helped me "grok" modern poetry – as theatre, grand imagery and social commentary. The author plays with references from film, literature, painting, television and on top of all that -- Victorian sexual practices! The cultural references -- too numerous to mention -- include film director John Woo, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, Goya, Aubrey Beardsley, Lana Turner's breasts, the women of Jekyll & Hyde, Orpheus, spelunking, and Zorro. It's a startling and original collection and every time I open it, I come away inspired. I would say it's a must for anyone who wants to look at poetry through fresh eyes.
