|About the Book
The conflict in the disappearance of small town living with the insurgence of city-size populations and values is a metaphor for adjustment and adaptation of the human spirit. Filled with images revealed as modern archetypes, George Karos's poetry marks personal parallels between the cycles of physiological biorhythm and the functional transformations of the intellect, seemingly out of control and constantly changing with the external environment. The outcome is seen as growth, but not without resistance to change.
