A Month’s Worth of Instructional Poems

January 11, 2019


A Month’s Worth of Instructional Poems is a poetic handbook
for exploring humanity through a surreal lens. This book elevates
the mortality of the human experience and enhances one ’s life
view. With an eye on nature and the everyday, these short prose
poems explore the world not as it is, but as it would be if poetry
was in the foregrounded of the human experience. The poems
manage at once to be playful, light, and even comical while still
being deeply meaningful and far-reaching. With language that
is accessible and purposeful, diction that sounds like a friendship,
and images that sizzle in one’s memory long after the mind’s eye
imagines them, A Month’s Worth of Instructional Poems is full of
the kind of wit and wisdom that sticks around after the book is
read and re-shelved.
