Description

In Swastika into Lotus, Richard Katrovas, a "punk formalist," casts a wary eye on poetry, poetry readings, higher education, the UFO cottage industry, organized religion, fine dining, climate change denial, and national right-wing politics. The book's humor is dark, by turns self-deprecating and fierce, and yet many of the poems are unabashed in their assertions of both filial and romantic love. Heaving traditionally "formal" verse through a looking glass, Katrovas has produced a book that is not for the passive-aggressively "sensitive."
