Efflorescence tells the story of a love that spans continents, bringing the U.S. and Iraq into a single bed, trying to bloom a new world order. We travel with the poet to Jordan…curse drones…and learn of Abu Khalid, who, “using remnants of weapons, rockets/and tank shells, rolled out the dough to make barley/bread which his son then sold on the street.”–Philip Metres, author of Sand Opera
