Bloom (the title is taken from a line in Paul Celan’s poem, “Psalm”: “we bloom in thy spite”), overflows with images from T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (“hooded hordes swarming over endless plains, stumbling in cracked earth,” among others), and seems utterly contemporaneous with his first, in the context of the current destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, part of the larger effort of an international reorganization of the world we know as “The War on Terror.”
