Lips Closed For The Wave

The poems in this collection explore certain sacred and self-destructive threads in the twenty-first century experience of dailiness. Written in free verse, the poems shift between voices, characters, and registers, seeking unsettled and unsettling corners in ideas and experiences of profession, companionship, and kinship. Many of the poems are driven by exits and retreats, using the dramatic moment of departure to explore ambivalence and desire in the present and lost moment.
