I`m No Longer Troubled by the Extravagance

€ 17.95


`I`m No Longer Troubled by the Extravagance is a collection of poems that assign new meanings to the people and things of the past. The book moves in three sections through a fantastic landscape that maps human fragility. The poems in the first section speak to matters of the heart--intimacy and loss--punctuated by lovers who leave. The second section is comprised of prose poems chronicling misadventures and conspiracies: Russian spies on Wilshire Boulevard, artichokes that mate for life, and secret photographs of God. Finally, the third section pans out from individual experience, hosting the collective in fable-like reflections. Together, the poems in Extravagance mark with fragile acceptance the surreal extravagance of being alive.The Relentless One day we`ll know how long the dead have to be dead before they feel hunger. One day it`ll be summer forever. In the meantime, the weather, looking for its cue, keeps an eye on me; and I keep whatever money`s in my pocket crumpled in a ball. A relentless responsibility dogs me, and the funny thing is, these are the lyrics to a happy song. Go ahead, tap your foot, snap your fingers. We`re roasting a pig in the yard. `-
