at 3 o'clock I think of sex and death
at 3 o'clock I think of sex and death is the debut collection by Liverpool poet and musician Lisa Jones. Her work is inspired by star-crossed lovers on the run, voyeurism, lonely leather jackets and rock 'n' roll.
"...a voice both vulnerable and powerful, a voice that resonates with the heady charge of instincts and physical desires."
"Lisa Jones's poetry is driven by a subliminal urge to transcend the oppression of the day-to-day, the restraints that turn humans into machines and fill our dreams with "lies and decapitations." This is a voice to listen to as it grows stronger and stronger."
"...poetry that speaks of defiance and fragility, the machine and the body, craving and sweet satisfaction. It is at the point between these opposites that the heart is revealed to us and we cannot help but dive in."
"Without realising it, we have absorbed the pain, awkwardness, confusion, all of our favourite delights. Strangely comforting. You slip into this world and will want to stay for a second cup."
