A Means to an Ens is a collection of narrative poetry that tells the story of the last man on earth. Years after waking up to find himself seemingly alone in the world, the narrator heads out on a journey to find any sign of life in a desolate place, but is instead confronted by the ghosts of his past.

This book reads like a nihilistic teenage lost his girlfriend and went about expressing it in a creative and poetic story form.
That said....David Lavato (the author) is real poet and these dark poems have moments of bright genius.
