About Triggermoon Triggermoon:

"The poetics enacted in Triggermoon Triggermoon is rare in its exuberance and delicate humanity, its wistful acceptance of imperfection as the human condition, imperfection as a kind of pet we grow to love and depend upon. I have grown to love and depend upon this book."
—Bin Ramke

"Julia Cohen's poems will knock you out with their fresh logics like some moon-governed dream. Echoes echo, moons moon, the animate world amazes repeatedly with its agile turns of meaning and sound. With its two-headed kitten, its insurgent Billy goats, its capillary action, this collection is half in the world and half in the 'non-world' that 'occasionally rolls over you,' utterly grounded in the domestic and wildly transformative."
—Elizabeth Willis
