Publisher Comments:

Poetry. With 21 illustrations by David Munson. When Jack Kerouac deviated from the traditional haiku form, he began calling his poems "pops." Andrew Rihn deviates even further, to the edge of formlessness, adding a new entry into the rubric of "American pops."

These poems remind us that we are all tethered to something dark, violent, and absurd that lies hidden below the surface of late capitalism.

About the Author

Andrew Rihn is the author of the chapbooks Outside the Clinic (Unlikely Stories, 20009), The Rust Belt MRI (Pudding House, 2010), and Foreclosure Dogs (Winged City Press, 2011). In 2008, he won the Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Scholarship Award. He has run creative writing workshops in a local domestic violence shelter and currently volunteers with Reentry Bridge Network, a non-profit connecting prisoners and the arts.
