Escape Velocity

From the righteous indignation of welfare mothers to the cloying calm of West Coast Buddhists, Escape Velocity splices the personal and the political as seamlessly as life itself. Funny and ferocious, poems such as Mosaic Wipe, Due Process, and Newsworthy go fearlessly into darkened spaces to crack them wide apart. In this new collection of lyrically canny compositions, David Breskin courageously gathers up the fractured facets of American life and transforms them into a stunning, spinning mirrored ball of postmodern poesy.
