"These charged poems are masterful. The velocity with which they move is intoxicating. In Abstract Slavery, Shipley and Miller pilot words philosophically, surrealistically, anarchically. Indeed: “Loony signs of wonder stamp altars on their customers.”
Uche Nduka, author of Nine East

"This book is like an ulcer oozing poetry. There’s nothing redeeming about these poems. Which feels like exactly what some of us might need right now."
Nick Demske, author of Nick Demske

"As much as I hate that fucking glazier, Abstract Slavery updates Paris Spleen for me. Mind Puckering . . . I mean Mind Fuckering."
John D. Morton, musician, founder of electric eels and X_X
