Run Away to the Yard (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Run Away to the Yard is a unique collection of poems that addresses personal identity within the contemporary culture. In parable-like vignettes and metaphor-dense portraits, Krueger's poems challenge old notions of self, asking readers to reconsider what brings meaning to daily life. Through the lens of close observation--much like a photographer--Krueger examines the complexity of our responses to a convoluted world. Poems ask us to consider who we are when our lives become stripped of the ordinary and expected, whether that be material commodities, health, daily routines, relationships, even memory. Where, then, do we find meaning and purpose? These poems aim toward greater compassion--for other people and ultimately for ourselves.
