Poetry. Art. Silk screen printed glow-in-the-dark covers. Ebenkamp cracks open the mundane with jaded humor and uncanny horror. This collection of poems is densely packed and of psychedelic duration. "Between boredom and shock we oscillate" in a data-rich language forest continually interrupted by bursts of scrawling, full-color text art.
