Failed Existentialist in a Field of Fireflies
by Robert Fanning


Robert Fanning is the author of Old Bright Wheel (The Ledge Press, 2003). Fanning's poetry subjects range far and wide: from the creation of new words for the male sex organ, to the appearance of three different Christs on daytime television, to how a Ferris Wheel resembles marriage. In his new collection, American Prophet, his poems chart the journey of "some sort of pre-apocalyptic-possible-visionary" into America's malls, highways, farms and coastlines.
