One hundred poems by a diverse cross-section of young American poets delivers a wide variety of human experience. This collection touches on a range of subjects, many of them uncomfortable, brutally intimate, and totally unapologetic. With evocative, symbolic, and sarcastic language, these poets saturate the pages with their hearts and minds. If you find some that particularly resonate with you, short biographies and personal Q&As are included at the rear of the book.
