Here it feels no different from the dozens of other poems that make raunchy metaphors out of unlikely foods, weird animals and western topography. The Book About 8 by 5.

Though whether it involves a general critique of Augustan Rome, or instead takes aim at the war-like virtues that were all the rage--this author cannot decide. The tone is playful, but -- as we will see later on, when she recounts one of her troubled dreams -- the danger from her brothers should not be taken too lightly.
