Rags of My Soul: Poemsby T. Byram Karasu
Following the Roman poet Virgil metaphorically, T. Byram Karasu unflinchingly plunges into the depths of our collective unconscious. With this luminous book of poems, he draws on profound psychological insights to reveal much about the human mind. Karasu skillfully and courageously addresses the many nuanced layers of tenderness, sex, regret, deceit, guilt, and death in this debut collection of poetry. With his uncanny ability, irreverence, and transgressive intimacy, he achieves a sense of timelessness.
