On Washington Independent Review of Books’ September 2018 Best Books List.
A collection of poems constructed like a series of film montages or collages showing what the world looks like now.
Like a series of slides from a film reel, the poems of Dregs reveal the ruin, remnants or dregs left over from the wars and economic and human inequalities of our world today.
THE HOUR OF THE STAR from Dregs
In the blue séance room Beneath the stacked chandelier, The miracle of sorrow, or Milk and stars. The deep Key of death. A black Error on the edge Of the tall Blonde field. And no one knows Where that besieged city is. But to go back To that Little town and be born, Again.
