X Marks the Dress: A Registry
In X Marks the Dress, Guess & Darling weave a narrative of love and identity that unpacks itself again and again. Like beautifully wrought Matryoshka dolls, these poems explore the depth and wonder of language as well as its inability to truly define any one thing. Lines and images reappear in new and surprising ways--footnotes, appendices, definitions--that stunningly illustrate exactly how slippery love can be.
