Forgive my Pop Heart, for it hides such vacuous sorrows - for the heart, it is an unrelenting shrine to all that has been lost. But surely you knew that, surely you knew that. & all the mourners cried amen.
- stories of empty omens, reliquaries, effigies, hymns, mausoleums, altars, catacombs.
Pop Heart is a poetry text that reads like a confessional, a journal, a reckoning with the depths of the human heart that aches as much as it pumps. This book utilizes the bright flashes, colors, and lights quintessential to the Pop Art movement in order to dive into what is under that shiny veneer. It is an ongoing invitation to step into the cacophony of pain in order to see what beauty hides underneath. This poetry text is patchwork of typo, of misinterpretation, of the laughter that comes after you have wept so hard you can do no other, of trying to put into words that which balks at all and any language - or simply the desires of the human heart.
come on darling, show me what that heart can do.
