Heaven Is All Goodbyes


Shortlisted for the 2018 Griffin International Poetry Prize

“Eisen-Martin’s impeccable collection is a crucial document of this time.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

by Tongo Eisen-Martin 

This is truly revolutionary poetry. A vortex of images, observations, inspired leaps and free associations spills forth from a choir living in oppression and transience. Moments of political and spiritual convergence, surrealism and blunt materiality, gangsterism and its husk, revolution and perseverance, are captured in the music of metaphor and pure intention.
