Jillian Weise delivers a reckoning to the ableism of the Western Canon in Cyborg Detective, her third collection of poems. From calling out William Carlos Williams's medical model that "poetry heals" to biohacking Raymond Carver's "Cathedral" from the perspective of the narrator's wife, Weise leaves no metaphor for "blind moon" or "deaf skies" unchallenged. Part invective, part love poem, Cyborg Detective holds a magnifying glass to the fetishization and marginalization of disabled people, in particular women, while claiming space and pride for the people who already use technology and cybernetic implants to survive.
