SchoolBook - 2014 | First edition
At times a call to action and at others an intimate conversation between friends, Currin's sensual and surreal poems speak to the political upheavals and environmental catastrophes of our time. School is an instruction manual for igniting transformation through a collective effort of love and community.
' School is about the ways in which life elucidates the connection (or lack thereof) between human beings,the balance between vulnerability and drawing lines, and the importance of staying present and embracing change. As compelling as what Currin's saying is how she says it. Her work vibrates in what I call the sensual infrastructure: a logic of the senses that takes up residence in intuition's heart-mind circuitry.'
