"'Love Emergencies' evolved as an experiment in translation in which we sought to communicate our most intimate thoughts and feelings across language and culture without footnotes. . . . Although sealed in language on the page, these poems are seldom content to yield to their own limitations. Instead, they are always straining to reach beyond language into the turmoil of actual experience, where, as in a real emergency, when everything is at stake, language gets left behind and the body takes over—waving goodbye, touching a hand, opening into an embrace." —Bill Wolak & Mahmood Karimi-Hakak
