Fear of Description tells the story of a generation adrift and in crisis: at odds with its own ideals, precariously employed, and terrified of seeing itself in the planet's future. Cutting back and forth in time and ranging between elegiac lyrics and autobiographical accounts of a group of poets moving from Iowa to Brooklyn around the time of the 2016 election, these poems explore the slippery terrain between grief and friendship, artifice and technology, writing and ritual, hauntings and obsessions - searching for joy in art, but finding it instead in pitch darkness.
