THE LIVE ALBUM by Kat Payne Ware
Released July 31st 2021 // 46 pages
Kat Payne Ware’s THE LIVE ALBUM is a prime slab of poetry about pigs. The first side focuses on pork products, featuring ravishing cuts such as ‘BACON’, ‘BELLY’ and ‘LOIN’. In the second side Payne Ware’s poems grapple with the automation and mechanical production of the meat industry, highlighting its impersonality through playful use of form and intense language. THE LIVE ALBUM is an auspicious debut, one to sink your teeth into.
