Robbins’ first book of poems, Alien vs. Predator (2012), captured a large audience with its young, fresh voice rich in nuance, melancholy, and audacity. His second title possesses even more attitude, more self-deprecation, more wisdom. The book is rock ’n’ roll, political and not, timely, and lyrical. These 36 poems reveal Robbins’ critical eye as he takes in the peripheral and delivers tough revelations. “Sonnets to Edward Snowden,” which addresses the complex query “Who is the United States?”, is a standout.
