Informed by brothers both classical (Hypnos and Thanatos) and biblical (Cain and Abel), The Waxen Poor is at once a lamentation and a psalm of brotherly love. These are personal poems of psychosis and paranoia, of strangeness laced with beauty and grief, of lyrical mourning and narrative meditation. Poems in the collection have previously appeared in Best Creative Nonfiction, Blaze Vox, Cold Mountain Review, Hayden's Ferry Review, Notre Dame Review, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere.
