Patient Zero

by Tomas Q. Morin

-DOWNLOAD BOOK Patient Zero


"I will call the voice of this poet a 'common' voice... a voice a poet could take into an entire lifetime of memorable writing." --Philip Levine, Ploughshares

This second collection from APR-Honickman winner Tomás Q. Morín explores love gone sideways in the lives of lovers, parents and children, humans and the divine. Patient Zero is filled with voices--of all the people, places, and things that surround a life sick with heartbreak. Doors are the wooden tongues of a house, grocery-store cashiers are gatekeepers to the infinite, and food is the all-powerful life force behind every living thing.

From "Patient Zero"
