In The Shooting Gallery, Carrie Etter juxtaposes two series of prose poems: one exploring Czech surrealist Toyen’s World War II line drawings and one addressing US school and university shootings since Columbine High School in 1999. Both series consider the awful conjunction of youth and violence, at once real and surreal. In these terse, chilling, and compelling poems, Etter explores the aftermath, a landscape of loss and unanswerable questions.
