Todd Swift’s Experimental Sex Hospital

Todd Swifts Experimental Sex Hospital (download the book for free here) is the ebook sequel to his critically acclaimed, Mainstream Love Hotel. Shadowing that previous work, the poems here deepen and lengthen the poet’s exploration of desire and devotion, and, aesthetically, the tension between innovation and tradition in contemporary poetic styles. As in all Swift’s work, musicality, sense of form, and wordplay fuse with elevated and street-level tones that create a zany, risk-taking book-text that interrogates ideas of self-identity and poetics, with an earnest eroticism. Barely literature, or literally bare, these are poems that enjoy walking naked with a flamboyant display.
Todd Swift’s poetry was published in issue #2 , issue #3 and issue #11 of Cha.
