Black Holes, Black Stockings explores the physics and probabilities of human relationships, especially those between women. In uniting their two voices, Broumas and Miller create a single, strong, harmonious lyric voice that expresses itself in a collection of intricately woven poems. By immersing ourselves in these poems, we pass through a black hole, leaving pedestrian order behind, and enter a new order of natural images in a lush, erotic world. Emerging from black holes, the poems open like flowers in a shower of release, like a series of Polaroid snapshots, instantaneous and self-contained. Broumas and Miller fashion an elaborate pattern of detail, color, scent, and sound: a ritual of tradition, fantasy, and sensuality. This is a celebration of landscape, time, sensation, and being.
