Rosal finds trouble he isn’t asking for in his unforgettable new poems, whether in New York City, Austin, Texas, or the colonized Philippines of his ancestors. But trouble is everywhere, and Rosal, acclaimed author of My American Kundiman, responds in kind, pulling no punches in his most visceral, physical collection to date. “My hand’s quick trip from my hip to your chin, across / your face, is not the first free lesson I’ve given,” Rosal writes, and it’s true—this new book is full of lessons, hard-earned, from a poet who nonetheless finds beauty in the face of violence.
Patrick Rosal is the author of four full-length poetry collections. His most recent, Boneshepherds, was named a small press highlight by the National Book Critics Circle and a notable book by the Academy of American Poets. He teaches at Rutgers–Camden and lives in Philadelphia.
