LeBien, Noah - Cumflower
Cumflower is a collection of poems by Brooklyn based poet and performer Noah LeBien. Noah LeBien’s Cumflower, their first book of poems, is consumed with desire: to know the self, to make oneself known, and to undo that knowledge and the authoritative voice that shapes it. Caustic with irony, contradiction, failure, confusion, and violence—both against macho-intellectualism and the male-identified body—LeBien’s poems overflow and inescapably manipulate their author. Working within and against the gauze of confessionalism and the mythos of the American Poet, LeBien interrogates the possibilities of speech without authorship, vulnerability without use, and selfhood without delimitation.
