    Book Description:


    "Glenn Shaheen is claiming new ground for American poetry. His poems are about the nightmares of information overload, collapsing infrastructure, ubiquitous violence, and other ills of late empire. The subjects are not happy, but Shaheen's clear vision and crisp-often witty-language offer the pleasures of surprise, discovery, and recognition."-Ed Ochester
