Javier's new book of long poems is both intimate and elusive, a simultaneity brought to the fore by the author's interest in the occult and intuitive processes, in oblique and plain spoken discourses. Politically and erotically charged, Court of the Dragon eludes programmatic ideology, packaged identity politics, and confessionalism in its interrogation of the praxes of everyday living. Written over the course of a year, this striking new book conjures its future through intuition, improvisation, and magick.
