Apocalyptic Narrative and Other Poems offers a poignant look at the American landscape: factories, restaurants, farms, empty fallout shelters, glorified malls, and transfigured filling stations scattered across the land. This collection oscillates from the personal to the political, from the religious to the secular, never losing sight of the possibility of joy.
