Poetry. Christian Hawkey's CITIZEN OF is an edgy and ominous second collection. Hawkey constructs a visionary world rich with fantastic imagery. In blurring the line of reality versus imagination, this turbulent dreamscape calls into question the frightening and surprising nature of the actual world.
