The Shooting Gallery,
Carrie Etter juxtaposes two series of prose poems:
one exploring Czech surrealist Toyen's World War II line drawings and one
addressing US school and university shootings since Columbine High School in
1999. Both series consider the awful conjunction of youth and violence, at once
real and surreal. In these terse, chilling, and compelling poems, Etter
explores the aftermath, a landscape of loss and unanswerable questions.
