A Dark Wood is a work articulating in poetic form a modern human experience of being in the world. The poems appear to emerge from a tautness between a self seeking authenticity and social identarian normativity. Hence, naturally, the thematic fabric of this work is unveiled as a craft interwoven in often counterposed, fragmentary ideas on meaning and meaninglessness, essence and nothingness, sanity and absurdity, pain and relief, life and death, love and liberty, or loneliness and so on; the piece “On Existence” provides perhaps a glancing suggestion thereof:

Like blind fisherman journeying in the ocean seas, we trawl through life’s inner sanctum—

a universe so immense—

groping for meaning in things,

but finding much travesty.

And everywhere, we are ensnared,

ever in infinite absurdities.
