review of Super Cutey 8y Vox Anon

Super Cutey

the “unblack” cover

“i is Another” by Ray Dunkle

Vox Anon’s third collection of poetry, “Super Cutey”, deals primarily with a concept that occupied Eliot’s mind when he wrote the “Waste Land”; not only the observation that the world is in ruins but also that these ruins should be used to reconstruct specific aspects of the civilisation. Whereas Eliot put forth a rather ambitious full-scale reconstruction in terms of poetry Vox Anon seems to be either a bit more pessimistic in this task or haunted by the realisation that this world can be restored only partially. These cultural ruins encompass not only the Classics they also reach to the regions of Pop Art and Post-Modernism. It is not irrelevant that one of the questions raised in this book is “who is speaking?” The poems interchange the voice of the poet with the voice of a persona and the voice of a voice of a voice… These are echoes, scattered reflections of the world that cannot force its own density and continuity but has enough strength to impose its demands to the poet and to Rimbeaudean “I is another”.

One of the characteristic images that appear with some frequency is that of a unicorn. Vox Anon is fascinated with the possibility of the existence of a being if it is described with ink. Agreed description is not existence or a factual truth but in any case it is a poetical truth which is by far stronger. This is the reason why dead persons such as Kierkegaard or Artaud appear also in the pages. Vox Anon wants to make sure that they are alive, if only for a moment and in the narrow space a poem allows.

Maybe the key idea of the whole collection is love. The poet tries to establish a romantic concept of love in a world that finds even cynicism to be a luxury. In other words, in a world where pettiness wins there’s the public’s demand for realism pushed to its boundaries. Vox Anon sternly rejects such a notion;

“i have sacrificed my name
to the ocean of stars
to sand in my eyes
i became one with myself”
(“Die Before You Die”)

Not accidentally Rumi is mentioned in this poem as a mantra. This partial reconstruction of the world demands a certain level of idealisation, which will be the building material. For the poet these materials are mainly the rumours and the images of the past.

This is a rich, adventurous take of a free, super-imaginative mind, left pondering life and its many stripes and colours, directions without barriers and restrains, asking of it what is possible. Foremostly, this is an authentic writing. A stream of consciousness, an automatic writing of the submerged objects within psyche -call it what you will but it won’t be one thing: boring.
