Description

Void of Course presents new work composed over the last several years. Carroll's major themes - love, friendship, desire, time and memory, and, above all, the ever-present city - emerge in an atmosphere where dream and reality mingle on equal terms. These seventy-five poems range from graphic, sensuous shorter pieces to edgy stream-of-consciousness prose poems to lengthier, more contemplative works such as "While She's Gone, " an eerie four de force of longing over a departed lover.
