About this item

Sheryda Warrener's second poetry collection touches on the illusion of remaining grounded and a sense of belonging. A retired cosmonaut returns from a record-breaking 438 days in space and attempts to re-immerse himself in the world. One speaker considers reinvention from the top floor of the World's Tallest building; another, our complicated future from Reykjavik, post-eruption of Eyjafjallaj�kull. Confessions and aspirations suspend in air. Ghosts float in and out; inheritance and connection are called into question. Morrissey, Cindy Sherman, and Pancho Barnes make cameo appearances. Influence and personal lineage are traced back to the Vikings, demoted Pluto, artists frequenting a Parisian bar. One speaker confides: "Yes, she's longing to be elsewhere. Just past the sun deck there's something invisible worth having."In Floating is Everything, a resolution lies nearly always out of reach.
