Abstract

Black Observatory is a collection of poems that explores the fantasies, fears, and obsessions of an unnamed speaker who often makes his way through ominously strange landscapes. The speaker is frequently alienated from others and attempts to make sense of his surroundings—or at least observe them closely—in an effort to understand and/or ameliorate his predicament, which could be existential bewilderment or the effects of an unknown trauma. Along the way, he encounters wonder, humor, and beauty, as well as many dark revelations.
