Poetry. From the Confederacy, to Ground Zero, to the ruins of urban sprawl, this book is a monument to collapse—itself a terrible art: "Gen. Sherman painted landscapes." Sometimes, in the breakage of the human, nature returns: a loving catalog of trees and birds as well as shuttered franchise restaurants. Sometimes, when human relations break down, they create terrible yearning. Each type of war, in public space and private interaction, is given a new, evidentiary lament: "O Sunglass Hut, we hardly knew you!"
Susan Briante is the author of four books: DEFACING THE MONUMENT (Noemi Press, 2020), THE MARKET WONDERS (Ahsahta Press, 2016), UTOPIA MINUS (Ahsahta Press, 2011), and PIONEERS IN THE STUDY OF MOTION (Ahssahta Press, 2007). She is a professor of creative writing at the University of Arizona..
