PoemsBook - 2006
Lyrical and explosive, this debut book of poetry explores Alex Lemon's experiences as a brain surgery patient. Mosquito blends autobiography and poetry, bearing witness to a young man's journey through serious illness and his emergence into a world where eroticism, hope, and wisdom allow him to see life in a wholly new way. Mosquito is a resilient meditation that is as much Zen as it is explosive, as clinical as it is philosophical and lyrical.
