Bora Bora Bora by Daniel Feinberg
A book of experimental and mimetic fantasies, as well as the author’s everyday, almost confessional, Miami: the beach, the sun, the moon, nightclubs and nothingness, eros and emptiness. Feinberg crafts a language to observe an ecology where the coexistence of endless desire and inevitable disappearance reaches a metaphysical apotheosis in the romantic lyric. Through poetry, prose poetry, and science fiction, BORA BORA BORA approaches a multitude of subjects and subjectivities while always returning to and repeating the landscape’s elemental forces. Wavering between contemporary Miami hip hop and radical French philosophy, transgender activism and environmentalist nihilism, from rented Lamborghinis to Rimbaud’s drunken boat, from new desert Jewish mysticism to ennui African cyber noir, these are the dreams and nightmares of Floridian late capital.
Through beauty to liquidation, BORA BORA BORA is a book that says, poetry is powerless / like a spa / love is unreal / it is outer space / like the sun or the moon / on my obsidian breasts / yes my magnificent breasts / and the heart in dull disdain / floods this tourist trap / earth with our tears / i know i know pix / or it didn’t exist. Here is a collection of pictures, of visions, of poems to prove that inexistence can be as meaningful as its shadow.
