Necessary Crimes


Catherine Hunter

Necessary Crimes establishes a precedent, a place of origins-quick keen lines and resonating paradoxes of fear and joy, gritty textures and magic, presence and absence.”
—Prairie Fire

“Her poetry is a rough caress of words: palm, fingers, tips, running lightly over the erect down on our skin, the caressing hand thickened with effort, self-denial, and disappointment. A submissive eroticism blended with an unyielding vision of the unreasonableness of the world.”
