Narcissus: Poems

“Smooth-talking, deceptive, and obsessive, what Cayanan’s poetry does, declarative by sure-footed declarative, is strip sincerity of itself, sincerity being—like what it professes to go against—a stance, and, when particularly manipulative, a spectacle. Refusing us the illusion of our own trustworthiness, Cayanan’s work is fi ercely unconspiratorial yet terrifyingly intimate. Know thyself, the book urges, and then more urgently, a caveat: don’t ever let what you know fool you.” - Conchitina Cruz
