Sometimes poets attempt love poems, simple and pure, but . . .
Over breakfast, a husband trying to deny creeping out on his wife the previous night can’t help but give hints about the creepy things he really did. On a beach, a man minding his own business is accosted by a pretty woman before a strong tide embarrasses them both. A husband and wife debate over what to name a child conceived illicitly. A tone-deaf proposal for marriage ends in murder. A traditionally arranged marriage spins into a deranged and surreal nightmare.
These aren’t anti-love poems. These are poems born and burned out of love.
It’s not recommended that a reader attempt the entire book in one sitting. Many of the poems are dense, complex, and may go straight to the head. Best to peruse in small doses, with a preferred drink in hand.
