We Are Doomed: Dispatches From the City of the Future
by Brad Liening
InDigest Editions #001
About WAD: DFTCOTF:
We Are Doomed: Dispatches From the City of the Future explores a more overtly political stance than some of Liening’s previous work, in an attempt to write poems about politics without becoming too didactic or, well, fucking boring. The poems send messages from future places and deftly examine the ephemera of our every day lives.
