The City, Our CityeBook - 2011
A William Carlos William Award Finalist for 2012A Kansas City Star Top Book of 2012A Library Journal Top Winter Poetry PickA series of semi-mythologized, symbolic narratives interspersed with dramatic monologues, the poems collected in The City, Our City showcase the voice of a young poet striking out, dramatically, emphatically, to stake his claim on "the City." It is an unnamed, crowded place where the human questions and observations found in almost any city-past, present, and future-ring out with urgency. These poems-in turn elegiac, celebratory, haunting, grave, and joyful-give hum to our modern experience, to those caught up in the City's immensity, and announce the arrival of a major new contemporary poet.
