"Steinberg’s reappropriated text [in Getting Lucky] functions as a telling commentary on modern American society and the gendered molds it imposes on women and girls. The counterculture revolution urged from within the controlled, sonnet form gives tongue-in-cheek nods to the norm while flipping the bird with glittery fingernails."
It’s not often I get to quote such a nice thing about my work. It simultaneously makes me want to trill in delight and hide under my bed, going, “noooooo stopppp.”
Thanks to Sivan Butler-Rotholz for featuring me in her Saturday Poetry Series, after she saw me read last month, and to Moonshot for making that reading happen. Generous spirits, all of them.
