It employs the techniques of mannerist poetry to constrain language as ropes, cuffs, or shackles that might be used to constrain the body.

Each poem can be taken as a miniature sadomasochistic encounter where language is tied up, beaten, and twisted into submission. This book abuses language- language begs for it. Thumbscrews engages with the sexual subculture of BDSM in content as well as in form. It explores the erotic scene and the prevalence of role-playing in the kinky bedroom, examines various settings as pervertable locations, and chronicles a series of embarrassing trips to the emergency room.

Poems are shaped from the hobbled language of email, visual representations of pain, and odes to various implements. Thumbscrews is a dirty-minded, sticky-fingered book.
