What is the role of a poet today? What are the limits of poetry in addressing the present without losing sight of the past and the future? Can we run away from history? Habaj’s newest collection speaks to us from a world we would not like to experience but one which offers no alternative. It is our world. Our present, past and future come together in the telescopic sight of a sniper aiming right at the heart of humanity. These poems of speculative posthumanism speak of upheaval, destruction and the end of human culture and civilization, of ruins which we cannot see yet because we still mistake them for images of heaven and hope.
