Produktbeschreibung
What do you get when you cross the Good Samaritan, existential androids, and Midwestern pastoral scenes? Either a bad joke or the first poetry collection from Daniel R. Jones. In equal parts levity and contemplation, Jones delivers a uniquely accessible poetic voice. Whether he's exploring spirituality, the far-reaches of speculative fiction, or the tedium of life in a fly-over state, each piece is poignant and filled with a sense of quiet wonder. The poems oscillate between lighthearted quipping (as seen in ""To Caligula, from His Horse"" and ""Odin and I Race for the Runes""), wide-eyed introspection (as seen in ""Veering"" and ""The Brunt of the Curse""), and spiritual rumination (as seen in ""The Sheen in Dirty Things"" and ""Beyond the Balustrade""). Whatever the subject-matter or style of the poem, these pieces are sure to satisfy, inviting the reader into transcendence--whether that be through laughter, contemplation of God, or self-reflection.
