"Like teeth crowding a dark mouth, Jasmine Reimer’s Small Ob structions pushes crude objects up through a dusky space – and then pocks them with food. It’s wet in here; no, it’s arid and brown. There are piles of crumbling rock around columns that make corners go soft. There are flashlights for looking down holes, through orifices, around the edges of glazed berries and puckered figs. It’s dusty purple in here. It’s the color of the desert; I keep expecting to smell bone. I think it’s a cave in reverse If I put a finger inside its perfect circle Dark secretive and infinite I could pull out its interior Inside out insides in […] I am a cave in reverse"

"In her collection of poetry, also called Small Obstructions, Reimer opens “The Best Part of Suffering” with the line, “I want there to be holes in everything.” More than a line of poetry, it becomes an aesthetic methodology. “I don’t think you can have an intimate experience, whether sexual or not, that doesn’t open up to the inside. That opening goes back to the impetus behind the grotesque, which is to make everything base material. There is nothing too lofty not to be returned to the earth and to the body. I think a lot of what I do is really, really primitive.”"
