Recycle Suburbia by Dan Nowak




“As the title itself suggests, Recycle Suburbia is a place of contradictions, where the poet is desperate to make meaning of his world, to find the extraordinary in the mundane. The plain and the surreal, the erotic and the commonplace come together to create a space that is as rich as it is troubling, fantastic as it is familiar. Here, ‘Sixty miles from Detroit, everything becomes a car metaphor. ‘Here, ‘We carry galaxies in our mouths.'” —Blas Falconer

“Dan Nowak’s Recycle Suburbia is effervescent, irreverent, erotic, and funny. He celebrates the absence of maps, and how you can get both lost and found in Toledo, Ohio. In these poems, it’s like he’s running through a museum tilting all the pictures askew so that we can see the world more clearly in all its beautiful untidiness.” —Jim Daniels
