Attempting to stitch a quilt of language for the new millennium, Kyle Dargan finds himself in his third collection propelled forward by a mElange of voices--individuals passed on the street, journalists, philosophers, movie and cartoon characters, hip-hop emcees, and fellow poets--all of which build to a self-diagnosed logorrhea dementia. Dargan's voice channels an America mentally fatigued from a decade of foreign conflict yet cautiously hopeful about the promise of the country's renewed introspection.

In these poems, rife with the anxieties of the aughts, Dargan seeks to destabilize social and cultural landscapes believed to be settled--breaking and clearing ground to lay the foundation for a new American perspective.
