Showtime at the Ministry of Lost CausesBook - 2016
The poems in Showtime at the Ministry of Lost Causes are survival songs, the tunes you whistle while walking through the Valley of Shadows, to keep your fears at bay and your spirit awake. The shadows here are many, cancer, poverty, a lost love, famine, suicide, war, an ever-encroaching existential angst. Showtime at the Ministry of Lost Causes reminds us that where there is shadow there must, necessarily, also be light.
