"Opulence, obsession, orgasm and opera all start with an open throat, a gape, a release of pent-up desire. So, too, does LOVE-IN-IDLENESS," writes D.A. Powell of Christopher Hennessy's first collection of poetry. Moving from childhood to experience through myth and personal revelation, these poems risk everything while examining our longings and labor, our natures, and love and its discontents.
