Abstract

A collection of poems in which an absurd interior landscape collides with the horrors and mundanities of 21st America, and the absurdity of 21st century America collides with an interior landscape sculpted largely by modern horrors and mundanities. Influences include the New York School, public and private lives, popular culture, the failed nuclear family, the bizarreness and precarity of contemporary work, and the grotesqueries of late capitalism.
