In this fiery, imaginative, and daring debut collection of poetry, Abel James leads us on a tongue-twisting, brain-tickling romp through 21st century notions of "progress."
His lyrical, whimsical style beckons us on the quest for truth and healing in the age of memes, metoo movements, trolls and Trumpisms. Punching up at patriarchy, tyrants and the dominant social order, James deftly dismantles blind patriotism and the illusion of American superiority.
His urgently searing satire of tech titans and the surveillance state is tempered by playful antics, emotional depth, and a bold reverence for nature.
It's a subversive, hypnotic little book that confronts dark questions, conspiracy theories, magic, and histories mysteries with dazzling flurries of irresistible rhymes and ridiculous rants.
You'll meet indestructible robots, world-conquering pumpkins, $300 million dollar fighter jets, dog-eating dinosaurs, judgemental Sasquatch, and for the first time ever, The Dastardly Zuckerburglar. Speeding through true stories of eels on cocaine, you'll ultimately discover why designer babies and brain implants won't save us as we tumble toward the Singularity.
Not for the faint of heart, this book will challenge and entertain you.
