In these poems, Rae Armantrout searches for new ways to organize information. What can be made manifest? What constitutes proof? Do we "know it when we see it"? Looking at sex, botany, cosmology, and death through the dark lens of "disaster capitalism," Armantrout finds evidence of betrayal, grounds for rebellion, moments of possibility, and even pleasure, in a time of sudden scarcity and relentless greed. This stunning follow-up to Versed?winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and a finalist for the National Book Award?is a wonderfully stringent exploration of how deeply our experience of everyday life is embedded in capitalism.

Rae Armantrout has always organized her collections of poetry as though they were works in themselves.

The poems in the first section, Versed, play with vice and versa, the perversity of human consciousness.
