People often say that poetry is dead, but these four Florida authors prove that poetry is very much alive and well. P. Scott Cunningham explores contradiction and revelation in Ya Te Veo, remixing everything from Garth Brooks to Wu-Tang Clan. The poems in Steve Kronen’s Homage to Mistress Oppenheimer tackle the spaces between science and God, between the apocalyptic and the everyday. Mia Leonin’s Fable of the Pack-Saddle Child traces the story of Micaela, who finds enchantment and redemption in the written word. In Alphalexia, Barbra Nightingale meditates on the pleasures and playfulness of the alphabet.
