A volume of poems composed in late 2019 and early 2020. Any collection imagined in those six months would be scarred by what’s happening in the world, unmatched for the looming isolation and helplessness. The central pieces of this book are no exception. As a poet, though, Bruno goes back to roots, and steps sideways, and into his habitual scan of unchanging natures, dosed with self-mockery. Here, Bruno suggests how to laugh despite the gloom.
