The End of America Book 8
Set in San Diego County in the aftermath of the stock market crash and global financial crisis of 2008, The End of America, Book 8 casts a sharp, often satirical eye at a time shaken by economic, environmental, and interpersonal danger. In this series of poems, language becomes as uncertain as everything else; descriptions of problems are very much part of the problem. Among the "wires crossed across the public / selling," can poetry really help anyone see their lives more clearly? In its skepticism, The End of America, Book 8 tries to find a way to still believe in that possibility.
