Poetry. HYBRID MOMENTS is a tribute to identity crisis, a paean to semantic breakdown and reconstruction, and homage to the trickster spirit, most high sovereign of the poetic estate. Lifting its name from a song by the gothic/punk/horror rock band The Misfits, the volume hosts a diverse array of misfits and marvelously misshapen personae, all frustrating stable categories, worlds and rhythms. There is always need of time to shatter bonds, binaries and easy ascribable designs and Jon Curley's HYBRID MOMENTS heralds the occasion with antic grace, wit and weirdness.
Jon Curley is also the author of REMNANT HALO (Marsh Hawk Press, 2021), SCORCH MARKS (Marsh Hawk Press, 2017), HYBRID MOMENTS (Marsh Hawk Press, 2015), ANGELS OF INCIDENTS (Dos Madres Press, 2012), and New Shadows (2009). Originally from New England, he now resides in New York City. A professor in the Humanities Department of New Jersey Institute of Technology, he counts poet Amiri Barka and the citizens of Newark, New Jersey as particular inspirations.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
