"Belieu's poems use a vernacular of their own to suggest a noir world of erotic innuendo and red lights waiting to be run."- Neon Black Box is a raw, intense book, fueled by a devastating infidelity. With her marriage shattered, Erin Belieu sifts the wreckage for the black box, the record of disaster. Propelled by a blistering and clarifying rage, she composed at fever pitch and produced riveting, unforgettable poems, such as the ten-part sequence "In the Red Dress I Wear to Your Funeral": I root through your remains, looking for the black box. Nothing left but glossy chunks, a pimp's platinum tooth clanking inside the urn. I play you over and over, my beloved conspiracy, my personal Zapruder film-look. . . When Belieu was invited by the Poetry Foundation to keep a public journal on their new website, readers responded to the Black Box poems, calling them "dark, twisted, disturbed, and disturbing" and Belieu a "frightening genius." All true.

Of the poet's youth
Epithalamion
The birthmark
Last trip of the island
After reading that the Milky Way is devouring the galaxy of Sagittarius
I heart your dog's head
To an Englishman, lost in Florida
In ecstasy
The last of the gentleman heartbreakers
In the graveyard
One for my baby
Below zero
Liar's karma
Pity
Shooting range
In the red dress I wear to your funeral
