"C. J. Reaven Borosque has an imposing presence.
Her poems are hardly light or delicate."
-Jon Worely, Aiding & Abetting
“Her social critiques and daring efforts have earned
her a unique niche between science fiction author and culturally aware poet."
- Bradley Torreano, All Music Guide
"The energies of life are abundant here, & you will
hear the beauty of Reaven's dreams as well as
the screams in her nightmares."
-Rotcod Zzaj, Improvisationation
“I watched as you shaped in Crystalline Sweetheart,
Kafka's Gregor in a new form, female, and more
generous in its estimation of itself...capable of
dancing, celebrating the discovery of its difference”
- Dr. Demetrius Frederich Ké, satrap
aka, Dr. Charles Poncé
CIVILIZATION- C.J. Reaven Borosque
I am calcified
And rusting metal
Death bleeds backwards
Outside my lungs
Of lore stacked
From my feet to my head
All lolling behind the wind
Down the long passages
Of winding memory
And the wind
Upsurges in my veins
Like a flower
Or a butterfly
Made of carcass oil
I trundle down lanes
History has forgotten
Somewhere behind me
Life lies down beneath
Steaming mounds of earth
And grassy hills kissed gently
Somewhere behind me
Scattered in the snow
A blizzard of flesh
And cartilage, grinding
To a pasty pulp beneath
