A second collection, and first from Shearsman, by this Brooklyn-based poet, artist and small-press publisher. While Torchwood documents the loss of a religion and at times, the loss of language, it gathers hope as it goes. The mostly serial works in this collection explore the possibility of faith in humanity - colleagues, classmates, strangers, lovers - attempting a language of clear-seeing and shared spirit. A poetry of inner and outer worlds, of the diary and of the subway, Torchwood moves between the sentence and its trust in storytelling, and the fragment - evidence of the need to create silence in order to tell.
