Death Throes of the Broken Clockwork Universe (Paperback)
In his debut poetry collection, Death Throes of the Broken Clockwork Universe, Wayne David Hubbard illustrates journeys through physical space and abstract worlds of emotion.
Combining choreological precision with playfulness, readers enter the mind's eye of a poet standing along the shoreline of powerful forces that shape all lives: time, place, and love.
Written over a ten-year period, the collection calls to mind the poetry of Lorine Niedecker, Rae Armantrout, Larry Eigner, and Carl Phillips. Importantly, these poems resist thick, impenetrable themes, instead celebrating ordinal wonders of life that are hidden in open view. This spare book offers strong, memorable imagery and questions that will delight thoughtful readers.
