The Book of Funnels

Author: Christian Hawkey
Publisher: Wave Books

This book marks the debut of a startling new voice that restlessly transforms self and surroundings in every poem.

Weathers, objects and possibilities blow through these visionary and synesthetic poems, sometimes with aplomb, sometimes with trepidation, often with humor, but always with a startled and startling wonder. Hawkey’s poems search for the edge of intimacy in a world of multiplicity, looking for a relation that will hold as they “negotiate/ a stream of particles/ without end, except here/ A face across from me,/ the red warmth of soft breathing.”
