Admit the Joyous Passion of Revolt is a Marxist-feminist epic poem — wait, no, it's historical — actually it's poems of the worker's body. It is none and all of these things. It is absurd or perhaps entirely sincere. Gomez's second book brings together a series of poems on the life of Bolshevik feminist Alexandra Kollontai. It examines love and desire under capitalism, and imagines how these will look in a post-capitalist world. This is poetry for girls, poetry for communism; it's poetry for the past and for the impossible future.
