David Roderick’s moment e-book, The Americans, pledges its allegiance to airborne dirt and dust. And to laptops. And to pools, the Kennedys, a flower in a lapel, plastic stars putting from the ceiling of a child’s room, churning locusts, a jar of blood, a gleam of sunlight at the wing of a airplane. His poems swarm with lifestyles. additionally they ask an unanswerable query: What does it suggest to be an American? stressed opposed to the borders we build—between nations, among each one other—Roderick roams from position to put for you to dig into the messy, political, idealistic and eventually inexplicable notion of American-ness. His rangy, inquisitive lyrics sew jointly a patchwork flag, which he stakes along the entire noise of our building, our obsessive development and making, whereas he imagines the destiny of a kingdom outfitted on desire.

Winner of the 2014 Julie Suk Award for the simplest poetry publication released through an self sustaining press.
