Written with the verve of the uninhibited artist but with a clarity of thought and expression more akin to the scientist or scholar, these poems investigate the emotional and philosophical struggles of contemporary life. Often sparked by the horrors depicted in today's news, the poems combine surrealist images with spare and lyrical language to grapple with an increasingly absurd world. The most ambitious piece in the collection is a radical, post-9/11 translation of the Anglo-Saxon elegy The Wanderer, and other poems include "Don Quixote, You Sure Can Take One Helluva Beating," "Film Version of My Hatred," "Never Held a Gun," and "The Romantic Impulse Hits the Schoolyard."
