Poems exploring the theme of sexual, emotional, political, and spiritual desire through the eyes of a poet's characters examine the age in which we live, where dreams are not as easy as they once were.
The voice is frantic. Poems start mid-sentence; thought interrupts itself, interjecting breathless re-routings and disclaimers. Graham's is a tattered voice, one seeking wholeness in the latter, terrifying part of our complicated century. Included are six guardian angel poems, more like rants against the constantly craving, delusional human mind. Graham's allusion-studded poetry is not to be hurried over but savored, studied like sacred text.
