Christopher Citro may be the love child of poet Russell Edson and The Twilight Zone... From the ashes of domesticity and order a new American surrealism blooms, in which the charming, the unsettling, and the strange colorize the quote unquote normal." -- Amy Gerstler

"Somewhere in some alternate universe, there'a reality where you do get off at the next exit just to photograph the red barn," this remarkable poet writes in his debut collection. In this collection, the reader has the opportunity to live in that alternate universe, where you can watch a star shoot across a moths wings or eat a phoenix for dinner. There's a beautiful heart at the center of these poems, pulling them back from the precipice of "zany" or "clever." Instead they are poems that testify to the transformative power for the imagination.
