Aaron Shurin at The Green Arcade
March 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Aaron Shurin launches his new book, The Blue Absolute, a collection of prose poetry that resembles hot boxes of lyrical language combusting with daily life. People move and think amidst a flurry of dots and dashes in a constant shift of perspective and action—urban and pastoral, highly figured and fragmented, grieving and dreaming—each poem a compressed but fluid zone of almost psychedelic intensity. The book closes with “Shiver,” an American epic, at once a lament for and vision of a great city on the edge: San Francisco past, present, and future.
