Review of X Marks the Dress

New Review of Kristina Marie Darling and Carol Guess's X Marks the Dress: A Registry at PANK.

For example, in one of my favorite poems, “Unworn Garter,” Darling and Guess present us with a bride who would like to be different, so she wears blue rather than white, carries dead leaves instead of flowers and serves beets instead of cake, but ultimately she pays for her originality: “She decided on a tattoo that looked exactly like a satin garter. When the time came he knelt and she lifted. He scraped at her thigh while she gritted her teeth.”
