Perhaps for a live reading?

This is an odd piece. It's a series of poems, all sexual in nature to some extent. Each poem is pretty short. I think this would probably work better as a live performance. Since the focus is on BDSM, I can see it being a lively performance perhaps at a burlesque show.

The revolution part I didn't get. What are we revolting about? What is being revolutionized by this piece? There was plenty of airy descriptions of women in military uniforms and being strong but also being girly - which is all good, but how does that tie into revolution? I pictured women in various military outfits that had been BDSMed up marching in a line, submissives in tow. I'm not sure that's what the author was going for.

The Narration: Rebel Mistress did an OK job with this, though every word was emphasized. Perhaps she was directed to do this. Since this work was narrated by a woman, I immediately pictured a woman in power reciting each of the poems, but towards the end at least two of the poems had me wondering if the main character was suppose to be a man.... Those few poems weren't clear on whether a man or a woman was in charge, and, again, maybe that is what the author was going for.

Over all, it's an odd yet interesting piece. However, I'm not sure audiobook format is the best medium for this piece.
