Convulsive Editions, 2016
Jennifer Karmin and Bernadette Mayer’s The Sexual Organs of the IRS was conceived and written together in East Nassau, NY from 2009 - 2014. Sections of their project are based on the 3:15 Experiment, a yearly collaborative-consciousness writing experiment exploring hypnagogic and hypnopompic sleep/dream states. In these poems, Karmin and Mayer explore the universes inside and outside the alphabet skull. When they turn their open minds to one another, the potential of all meaning ricochets and blooms.
