Description

Paradox. In everyday American life, it is a thing to be avoided. Truly difficult intellectual tasks, such as attempting to understand and reconcile hypocrisy, contradiction, equivocation, moral relativism and the like seems altogether too taxing or pointless to those participating in mainstream culture today. Instant gratification has replaced true engagement. Self-centeredness has replaced self-awareness. Technology has replaced meaningful interaction.

The poems in this collection attempt to confront the paradoxes of our age. In a voice full of both awe and anguish, the speaker searches through the physical and spiritual worlds for solid ground on which to stake a claim on meaning. In a world where everyone's attention is being pulled in hundreds of dispirit directions, this collection searches for what binds us, what exists in the space between space, and a way to name the truth found there.
