Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness; Twenty-Four Hours of Light moves in and out of contact with the wanderings of a man who is loved by a woman he does not love back. His love for her only surfaces when she leaves him. He is an intellectual saturated with reason, but unable to apply his intellect to life, wherein the process he loses his grasp on sanity. She is more than a woman haunting us because of our regret of pushing her away, she is a lesson that we can never learn from.
Inspired by Julio Cortazar's 1963 antinovel Hopscotch, this collection of poems threads unrealized love with the dichotomies of darkness and light, the male and female, creativity and the intellect, fragmentation and the chronological, passive and active reader, as well as reason and intuition, agitates the theme of a futile search.
Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light is a testament to this poet's reach for spirit in a wide range of subject matters.
