Faithful as the Ground–Shawnte Orion

FATG-good2-WEBIn Faithful as the Ground, Shawnte Orion turns the domestic into the carnivalesque. He gives us the dust mites and bed bugs of the human condition that add up like the sodium in a bag of pretzels, the guilt in a conversation with mom, and the five hours of energy promised up by a 5-hour energy drink. Sleepless nights turn into contemplations of mortality in this memory-driven collection, whose final message is that the detritus lying in the nooks and crannies of our homes tells us who we are and how we got that way.

The back cover of this book also contains a highly unique blurb done by Charles Jensen (author of The Nanopedia Quick-Reference Pocket Lexicon of Contemporary American Culture: MiPOESIAS, 2012) in the form of emojis.
