In these hurly-burly times, a new volume of poetry is desperately needed to set the world on fire. Luke Salazar huddles in the rain holding a sodden pack of matches, a thin sliver of flint, a rusty twist of steel—nevertheless, sparks will fly. His poetry is dark, humorous, sexual, impotent, insightful, naïve, and poignant. Meaning will trickle subtly from his words, or smack you across the face with a mackerel. Pendulum from utter joy and celebration of human existence, to smirking cynicism in a world where mankind is a stain on an otherwise perfect planet.
The captain has now turned off the “No Smoking” sign. Enjoy your flight.
