REVIEW: THE RITUALS OF MUMMIFICATION – JOSEPH D. REICH (SAGGING MENISCUS PRESS)

The Rituals of Mummification takes you on a journey through the mess of modernity, transporting you through strange and wonderful time warps somehow familiar and abstract all at once. Snippets of daily life mingle with introspective musings and the ennui of the everyday. In this work we see the echoes of ourselves, and it isn’t all sunshine and roses.

…as if there was never ever any pain or suffering in this

soft pastel flute-blowing courting and seductive existence…

4, The Rituals of Mummification

A scathing look at our coping skills and and the lingering spectres of capitalism, politics and fleeting youth, The Rituals of Mummification is beauty and melancholy – as poetry often is. This is poetry for everyone, accessible and concrete. Each piece almost feels a ritual, setting you firm in the notion that you are not alone in your experience, or your discontent.
