dear corpse

In a cycle of poems so dark they burn-blind your inner eye, Shame stalks Forgiveness as bystander angels bear helpless witness. Dear Corpse invites us to escape with the author across a landscape littered with desiccated, gnawed-out lucubrations on what it means to be human—and each step of the way is riveting.
