On this I plucked off the gown, and he with much show of haste did begin to undo his points; but when I threw his frock down he clipped it up and ran off all untrussed

One of the great delights of Christine Stewart-Nuftez's Untrussed, part of the Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series, is the sheer variety of styles that she deploys, in poems that are personal, lyrical, formal, and ekphrastic.
Her latest collection, Untrussed, features poems originally published in such journals as Atlanta Review, Natural Bridge, Cimarron Review, and Prairie Schooner, to name a few.
The power of Untrussed, though, isn't just found in Stewart-Nunez's craft skills and ability to manipulate forms.
These musings fit nicely with the overall themes of Untrussed because they nod to the superhuman strength often needed to carry on.
I don't mind an untrussed
chicken - there's something sort of hilarious about the splayed out drumsticks, and this looser presentation exposes more skin to the heat and basting juices, so there's more crispy brown bits to crunch on.
There is little of the statuesque in the painting by Peter Bruegel the Younger of two peasants (one fat and the other as meagre as the crude flute alongside him) binding faggots with comic concentration, their breeches untrussed
and dangling in the heat of their exertions, their rustic hardiness in apposition to the delicate landscape behind them.
Release legs if they're trussed (held with skin or wire); the leg joint--slowest part of turkey to cook--will cook faster untrussed
If not, a piece of string will do the trick, or the legs can be left untrussed
Fourteen chickens later, they finally arrived at the best method: Roast the chicken on its side, untrussed
, at 375 degrees in a preheated pan, turning it on its other side after 20 minutes, then breast side up after another 20 minutes, and cook until the thigh has reached an internal temperature of 165 to 170 degrees.
