The Do-Anything Kids: Christopher Giarratano
Rife with colloquialisms, irony and a healthy dose of sass, the poems collected inBec and Callrefuse to be silent or subtle; instead they delve into the explicit, the audacious, the boldly personal.Bec and Callsubverts the notion of female sexuality as male appeasement, the French wordplay in the title using the meaning of ?bec??a kiss, mouthpiece or beak?to complicate notions of compliance and submission. The roles of Acadienne and feminist come with the responsibility of speaking up, andBec and Callis a means of vocalizing the societaldérangementof Acadian culture amidst the difficulties women encounter as a result of rape culture and anti-feminism. These poems are fearless and precise in their aim, but are not without a sense of play: Menstrual synchrony?s a bitch in a household of women: some sheets never see the line, endometrial tissue Javexed and tumble-dried. To captains off-duty, solariums are wheelhouses. Antique binoculars magnify songbirds, deer and that one black squirrel. Close the blinds to neighbours.Girl, you?re bodied, full-bodied, embodied.
