"Lorig’s work takes belief. One has to believe it to read it. These poems speak into a world where they expect not to be believed, but speak as if they are believed. This is the magic — and courageousness — of their speech act."

"Sturm and Lorig’s “Labor Day” is as much workers’ ode and formal spasm, as the Ted Berrigan/Anne Waldman “Memorial Day” collaboration to which it pays homage is elegiac and ghosted."
