Abstract:

Explosive language, rough sensuousness, unflinching eye--here is a poet who will not look away, and who is always committed to poetry's first purpose: to bring song. TOMBO is a book of lyrics fueled in equal parts by realism and big-fish storytelling, a book of wanderers, foghorns, summer rain, feral cats, and city jazz. Built on heartbreak particulars, these poems are raw, mysterious dilations of the moments of existence.
