-We are the coast of technology, - and Daniel Poppick's debut tracks the signal coming in towards shore. Charged with an electric syntax, haunted by lyric history, and -gripped in gravity's mood, - the poems in The Police ask: How do we navigate the miasma that we call a common language? And what is the clumsy, mythic force dictating our movement and relations? Who granted it this power? As Poppick endeavors to reconcile individual desire with the demands of a beloved collective, he finds a radical vulnerability lurking behind the curtain in the theater of friendship: the speech passing between us has a life of its own, the root of our tragicomedy and our only hope.
