Description

Delving into new worlds populated by robots, witches, talking pandas, and giant stags, this collection offers funny, haunting, and heartbreaking poems. Highlighting the poet’s dazzling lyrical instincts balanced by her stinging wit, it moves between high art, pop culture, science fiction, and detective fiction to produce a series of unforgettable surprises. The characters herein speak from the page, from the lonely android seeking love in the wrong places to Sherlock Holmes’s hunting for a Yeti in Tibet. By searching out the heart of every real or fantastical situation, this compilation explores what it means to be human.
