Published by Geoffrey Gatza
In PHARMAKON (A CASE HISTORY), readers encounter speaker as diviner, a questionable house of rooms with reoccurring “trinkets pinned in a velvet box.” Through footnotes & fragmentary thinking, through image, we enter these rooms, craved longing in the open spaces ruminative in its search, a diviner’s wit. Through rites of sacrifice, eros, sessions, the boundaries of time are broken down & the reader is caught in an alternative already-present that cannot help itself but be gone or going. It is impossible not to be enraptured in the longing of Darling’s intimately created perception, the hysteria of myth & deconstruction, the waiting, the water rushing, the shaky here & now.

—Shelly Taylor, author of Black-Eyed Heifer


PHARMAKON is a rattling collection. Laced with pinching, dark detail, the tinge of gone, resonant trinkets, and a seasoned sense of loss, this book dustlessly describes the bewilderment of being, being not, and the feeling that comes with those.

—Emily Toder, author of Science





Kristina Marie Darling is the author of sixteen books, which include Melancholia (An Essay) (Ravenna Press, 2012), Petrarchan (BlazeVOX Books, 2013), and a forthcoming hybrid genre collection called Fortress (Sundress Publications, 2014). Her awards include fellowships from Yaddo, the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, and the Hawthornden Castle International Retreat for Writers, as well as grants from the Kittredge Fund and the Elizabeth George Foundation. She is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Poetics at S.U.N.Y.-Buffalo.
