DREAMT, or The Lingering Phantoms of Equinox


“Triumphantly mordant and transporting poems.” —Kirkus Reviews

Book description via Hekate Publishing: “Alex Salinas’ DREAMT, his second collection, presents dream after dream, less sleep induced than by a seer’s Delphic vapor. He remains painfully awake, keeping it real on Texas farm roads, expressing compassion for people who breathe that dust; his beat, a basketball bouncing on an asphalt court. Salinas makes the game of hoops mythological, invokes dog and cat totems as well as ancient Gods to bear on the world’s torn body politic. His compassion and pain plays out to an Elvin Jones drum roll; his struggle, Promethean; a true maturing poet, his book, an important read.”
