About the Book

Via both associative lyrics and disjunctive narratives, Aflame looks to the intersection of T/time and experience, sex and fatherhood, husbandry and the cosmos, and whether the experiences Aflame dictates are quotidian or ecstatic, these poems stabilize and arrest.

About the Book

Aflame seek to reconcile the meaning of time—its wasting, its wavering—with the poet’s physiological passage into mid-life.
