Somewhere between a botched assassination attempt and a wild love/hate affair with a sadistic Silicone valley girl, Teri Louise Kelly’s second poetry anthology is a barrel ride through incurably romantic fallacies, self-inflicted tendencies and after midnight fantasies. A poetic world created in visual nightmares and future ideologies- a world where ex-lovers finally get decapitated and new lovers take up the reins of blunt trauma impact. A world awash with backward glances and forward stances, a fluid, distorted world of optical illusions, jack-booted romps through purgatory and love on unmade beds. If all fresh starts are, as Kelly claims, made from dirty laundry, then her beautiful head-on collision of narcissism and allusion in 2008’s ‘Girls Like Me’ has been steam-cleaned and sun-dried, then dipped in the colour of night. ‘Dead with Its Legs Spread on an Unmade Bed’ is premonition and post-humus re-enactment mashed into one cold machine. There is nothing pretty about it, and there was never meant to be.
