    • Abstract:
      Love, science, and politics collide in this sharp assessment of who we are now, in a generous selection of work by the award-winning poet.The terminator--the line, perpendicular to the equator, that divides night from day--is the organizing concept for this collection, which examines a world where'pert, post-apocalyptic / entertainment trades have trod the pocked / planet raw.'Kenney's division of light verse from darker poems serves to remind us that what makes us laugh is often dead serious, and what's most serious can be best understood through wordplay, an ironic eye, the cleaving and joining magically effected by metaphor. With grace and candor, Richard Kenney thumbs through our troubles like a precious but scratched collection of vinyl:'the nature of emotion's analog, while languages are digital.'From'Siri, Why Do I Wear a Necktie?'to the eternal springing of love ('Magnetic swipe to the blinking lock / is me to you'), Kenney reminds us that art's the best weapon to maintain our wits in very challenging times.
