“There is no known treatment.” Part fantasy and part autobiography, the tender, tentative, and brutally perceptive poems in KNOTTED. explore what common humanity might be shared between a young woman poet and an infamous killer, whose lives and circumstances overlap in some ways, diverge in others. What does it mean to suspect oneself of the worst, to compare oneself to an extreme example of depravity, to be simultaneously compassionate and complicit?
