Low Static Rage (Paperback)
Reading this poetry collection is like being sucker-punched in the gut. Haeflinger's poems ask s to be honest about the suburban cages we build ourselves into. Each page is packed with tension and observation. Read this to shake off the holiday gloom. [Christina] — From Low Static Rage
Poetry. Whether in the alley, in the woods or out the back door, the poems in Michael Haeflinger's debut collection create a soundtrack to a world thrumming with unease. They inhabit spaces between stations on the radio dial and ask readers to lean-in and listen for it: the quiet rage building around us. Haeflinger's poems channel neighbors who'll never look each other in the eye, sons lost on mountaintops, and drivers sitting in traffic as the world changes around them. They invite readers to live in the in-between spaces they inhabit--where no one knows whether they're coming or going. LOW STATIC RAGE is a dazzling showcase of Haeflinger's mastery of form, craft and style.
