Poetry. Ben Fama's DEATHWISH drops us back into the beauty and the fantasies teased out in his first book of poetry, FANTASY, re-braiding them through BDSM scenarios, metaphysical inquiries, and the maximalism of the contemporary.

"If your iPhone had any feelings it would write like Ben Fama."�Ariana Reines

"Ben Fama's 'I' is a desolate seer; his 'you' is us all; reading DEATHWISH is a role play. These sexy, uncluttered poems are love notes and accusations saturated with a personal/political heartsickness I find weirdly consoling. Fama's vivid, semi-abstract renderings of moments within our terrible moments are gifts."�Johanna Fateman

"DEATHWISH finds beauty in scarcity and drained resources�nudes take up all the data, and brunch is a blackout. These poems want to die young, but instead live out the melancholy of endurance. I loved this book."�Chelsea Hodson
