Tanis Franco uses evocative metaphor and refreshing language to relay a year in the life of a changing body. These poems are a snapshot of a queer bodily life as relayed through the history of a quarry, and the history of a quarry as relayed through a queer bodily life. Through the natural and unnatural, Quarry investigates the ineffability of spaces. Spaces are not exterior to bodies. Land and environment are essential to making and unmaking the self. A quarry is a natural place made unnatural and unstable, at any moment it can be abandoned. Quarry is a broad shape, deepening and excavating as it drills from external to internal.
