As a perennial outsider, the speaker traverses through loneliness, consumerism, and silence, until he sees his personal history as communal. It’s a quest to honor the complexity of the mind and heart over time—a quest for justice, love, and compassion. Cultural forces and conventions—repression, prejudice, power regimes— frame feelings of powerlessness, and are explored deeply in this collection.
