POETRY. Linh Dinh's third book of poems, Borderless Bodies is a fierce yet playful investigation into the body as metaphor, with its various processes as allegories--"Where bones always nudge/ Against the fuzziest skin./ Where inside and outside/ Are confused and flushed"--from "Borders." The body as polity and politics as metaphor and subject at once--"One only misses one's bellybutton/ As one is hacked away from it"--making this perhaps Linh Dinh's most ambitious and accomplished book to date. His other collections are AMERICAN TATTS: REVISED AND EXPANDED EDITION and ALL AROUND WHAT EMPTIES OUT.
