Poetry. Winner of the 2014 Red Mountain Poetry Prize The poems in FAR AWAY explore the gothic landscapes and depleted economies of a semi-fictional state on the margins of empire. The beleaguered voice at the center of this collection wanders through foreclosed houses and shattered relationships, caught between vision and memory, forgetting and curiosity. Human loss and state neglect overlap in FAR AWAY to reveal a new republic of isolation.
