  1. Beskrivelse

    "Ultimately, the lyrics in "Hoodwinked" read as odes to mortality. They marvel nonstop, unsentimentally, and with necessary ambivalence, at the world as given and the human inability to consistently rise to the exhausting challenge of making every second count. These poems constantly acknowledge that 'all flesh is grass.' They make us hear the wondrous, terrifying hum of impending obliteration, while at the same time never growing immune to beauty, never ceasing to be curious about what the grass itself makes of our common temporal conundrum."

    --Amy Gerstler, from the introduction

    Inherent untrustworthiness--of received opinion, the trompe l'oeil deceptions of nature, and the workings of our own unfaithful minds--is given its proper menace in David Hernandez' "Hoodwinked." In poems that range from the backyard to Iraq and back again, Hernandez disturbs the surface of contemporary life to reveal barely submerged worlds that, impossible to fathom, make fools of us all.
