    To me this chapbook is a meditation on masculinity and toxic masculinity and its influence on the culture and experience of the American Midwest I wondered for a while where the women were as Katie Schmid painted pictures of boys and men and fathers and then it became clear women are the eyes the observers This is the Midwest as seen by a woman which is dominated by the male experience of the space The girls are waiting for and wondering about their fathers “The daughters of the world go to sleep in their fathers’ work suits” “warp”The women watch the strange dangerous unhealthy rituals of the boys “They feed him antsThis Boy is hugged until he glows with health He is now their King” “The Boys of the Midwest 4”The women hear the boys’ catcalls and they know precisely what they mean “Boysyell lewd words to anyone who looks like she might be able to resist them” “Some brief information about the Spartans”The women have spent time pondering about the things that haunt men and boys because it will have a direct impact on their own life “A boy thinks of all that he will kill All that will try to kill him” “Some brief information about the Spartans”The women are pillars of comfort and physical affection for men “The Boys of the Midwest hold my hands in theirs until they ache” “The Boys of the Midwest 5”At times the woman surfaces and has a genderless moment like in “4th of July” But then we return to reality in nowhere in which “a man rode up on a bike and looked me up and down” “Nowhere”But the reality of the Midwest is that we are beholden to nature When the wind gets in the house there is not much to be done You can try to leave but where is there to go? Is nowhere somewhere else or are you already there? I love Katie’s writing and her ability to surprise you with every sentence She presents her descriptions of the world so straightforwardly and you realize “yes this is the world I’ve known I’ve just never thought of it that way”

    A fell spare spacious Midwestern music intensely lyrical haunted and summative in the same breath as if a Nebraskan oracle spoke from a cave Our fathers are all brokenheartedbut they still name every bird begging usto look at the crows who scratch and gleamin the dirt They name the dark thingsfor usI can't wait for this writer's full length collection; when her lightning strikes everything is going to catch fire
