Bewilderness explores urban and suburban wildernesses-- threshold places--in a darkly comedic, surreal set of prose poems. In Bewilderness, urban and suburban landscapes come to life as shape-shifting places, enchanted places, mundane places of magical thinking, as the reader explores the heterotopias of playgrounds and backyards, lakefront parks, splintery subdivisions, and semi-industrial wastelands. Creatures that inhabit these edged-out corners of land take on the features and neuroses of their human cohabitants in poems that are direct, declarative missives with offbeat instructions for navigating and inhabiting these liminal worlds.

"We picked rhinestones from wings of sunglasses and searched the golden tongues of shoes for white-lies or pennies that might have been left behind."
