Day Mattar's Springing from the Pews is an explosive pamphlet which explores an episode of sexual violence through a verse play interwoven with confessions and journal entries. Mattar's poetry is eloquent, with a dark intensity underlying the sugary surface, with echoes of Frank O'Hara and Sharon Olds. A breathtaking read, Mattar's splenetic energy gushes out like water from a fire hydrant.
