Description

In this debut collection, Jason Heroux describes the atmosphere of a world that is both realistic and bizarre. His simple, clear poems capture the strange and mysterious absurdity of everyday life. The world becomes a place where shadows are kept in jars, where a frightened spoon begs for its life, and a man falls in love with the contents of his briefcase. Paradoxically, it is also a place where everything feels oddly at home, with 'clear-headed raindrops rushing full speed into this one and only world.' A poet of keen observation and unusual imagery, Jason Heroux writes spare, haunting poems that exist in the intersection of reality and dreams.
