How many ways can we touch, be warm? And how can we de-center the very place where we stand? Julia Cohen’s first full-length collection, Triggermoon Triggermoon, attempts to answer these questions in lyric poems that mix autobiographical memories with paratactic & de-gendered voices. Arresting and unsettling, Cohen’s poems speak in breathless wonder & youthful exuberance, yet are grounded in mature concern for the “generation that hasn’t happened.” They extend beyond the individual speech act, making more meaning than any solitary voice could tell. Triggermoon Triggermoon is a lyric disrobing, not of personal narrative or story, but of how to let go of one rung while jumping for the other.
