Waifs and Strays
In the sixth publication in the City Lights Spotlight Poetry Series, Cajun poet Micah Ballard's Waifs and Strays recombines the allure, fixations, and diction of the metaphysical poets with the alert and streetwise urban fracturing and amazements instantaneous in contemporary San Francisco. With the haunted elegance of Charles Baudelaire and the handmade warmth of Semina, Waifs and Strays is a rejection of a slick and disposable culture.
