What It Means to Fall
Softcover, 89 pages
What It Means to Fall explores the nature of personal memory, travel, faith, and loss, in poems that are at once searching and whimsical. Influenced by freeverse styles of Whitman, Collins, Oliver, and Cummings, this new collection of poems addresses the struggle to find an authentic voice in postmodern America where young adulthood is defined by irony and meta-discourse. In these poems, airplanes become houses of sacred ritual, the moon is made of science, and toads sing sweetly to would-be lovers.
