A Drunken Man on a Bicycle

A lyrical exploration of the dysphoria of our current social reality, A Drunken Man on a Bicycle focuses on the intersection between personal and communal experience as authoritarian national leadership overwhelms the individual consciousness. These poems capture the atmosphere of the absurd and the horrific, the preposterous and the historic, and dramatize how our interior life shifts between cartoon and film, dream and tragedy, anxiety and the actual policies enacted in the shared world. They give voice to the paradoxical unity of the mad and the elegiac and enact our collective entry into the banality of a drunk on a bicycle as he pursues understanding at this perilous moment in the history of civilization.
