The Alphabet between Legs

"In Yu-Han Chao’s collection, The Alphabet between Legs, these sensual and impressionistic poems read like pages from a primer of the human form as it interacts with space and becomes an object or experience in itself. The language sometimes whispers, sometimes explodes, as the poet reveals the body’s intimacies as well as its vagaries in images that flex across and energize each line." – Susan Varnot
