In his debut collection, William Fargason inspects the pain of memory alongside the pain of the physical body.

Fargason takes language to its limits to demonstrate how grief is given a voice.

His speaker confronts illness, grapples with grief, and heals after loss in its most crushing forms.

These poems attempt to make sense of trauma in a time of belligerent fathers and unacceptable answers.

Fargason necessarily confronts toxic masculinity while navigating spiritual and emotional vulnerability.
