Mature ThemesBook - 2014
In Andrew Durbin's Mature Themes, texts flow in and out of media realities and consciousness like images on a Tumblr dashboard. He assays the controversies and topologies of public lives mired in sex, secrecy, and fame, where celebrity subjects and anonymous speakers bleed into one another, sharing the dreamy, often darkly funny space of a Hollywood. These poems pursue the other, secret realities that lurk in a pressurized empire, an earth, on the verge of collapse.
