Clarity and Other Poems

Overview


Poetry. Teeming with the fragments of ancestors' whispers and mistranslated ad lingo, these poems are intricate and wildly disjunctive. We may be stuck in a world where "Casinos are in every cortex," but that doesn't mean that there isn't also room for "aspiring Democracy" to burst forth.
