How They Brought the News from Paradise (2012)

In “How They Brought the News from Paradise,” a first-person speaker narrates his story (in heroic verse) as he swims from one end of a resort pool complex to another in search of what he thinks is more alcohol, but is in fact a journey to find his marriage and himself. The poem plays with the epic and tragic within a setting stifled with consumerism and class separation.
