In this follow-up collection to the National Poetry Series winner A Hummock in the Malookas, Rohrer's poems play against convention, finding dark, surreal underpinnings in the seemingly innocent objects and experiences of everyday life. Direct, humorous and disquieting, Satellite further develops the unique sensibility of an important young poet.
