In poems that embrace the noise of our times, Conrad unfurls a lyric response and addition to this steady hum of existence. From a Bob Seger concert to Wile E. Coyote's latest failure, from the tragedy of the Lockerbie crash of Pan Am Flight 103 to 9/11 to the Great Recession, these poems draw us through shared moments and sound, bringing us to singularity of experience shared. These are poems that emerge from the gritty soil and hard-lined brick facades of the American Midwest. They sing of the music of the age. They sing of the gritty face of contemporary America. What follows is a lyric chorus of Barbie dolls, zombies, aliens, busted statues, and the various stuff of the world that Conrad unburies and holds up for the world to see.
