DEAR DIVORCE, THANK YOU (EVEN THOUGH I HATE YOU) SINCERELY, MY PARENTS' GROWN KID: A JOURNEY OF HATE, HEALING AND UNDERSTANDING is an intimate conversation about what it feels and looks like to no longer be permitted to live the normal you always knew, and positively moving forward from our experiences.

It will also teach them how to avoid the past mistakes by following biblical instructions for lasting relationships.
Pitched partway between multivalent modern Orphic hymnal and satiric devastation of the Internet age's spiritual emptiness, Divorce Procedures for the Hairdressers of a Metallic and Inconstant Goddess, Justin Isis's poetry debut, combines discordant rhythms, fragmented multilingual sampling and deliriously surreal imagery to create a crosscultural assault on boredom, a pagan invocation of divine progenitive forces: Lawrentian goddesses of the blood glimpsed through a Situationist lens of anarchic eroticism and vandalizing humor. A Mystery Rite in rhyme for the terminally distracted and a trenchant breviary of the lightning age to come.
