Failure to Appear: A Poetry Reading
presented by Rosalie Moffett
October 21 | 3 P.M. | Zoom ID 983 7038 8951
The speaker in the collection Failure to Appear comes up against the erosion or warped manifestation of the American promise in poems that consider capitalism, consumerism, car lot inflatable bald eagles, mass shootings, the tentacular Amazon fulfillment center, Scrooge McDuck and Lucky Charms. These poems interrogate the nature of hope, what can be revered, and the limits and possibilities of the human.
