Zachary Schomburg has delivered his latest work from a dark place, where little machines repeat in a hollow voice, “this is only further proof of your badness.” Presented in a single narrative, The Book of Joshua is a sorry heart begged out of dreams, death & a horse's eye. It is an epic journey not only affirming that “there is a difference between sadness and suffering;” but that Schomburg is one of the most unusual poets writing today, pushing his work beyond our familiarity. These poems have a thirst for blood, but they don't yet know exactly what to do with their hands. The Book of Joshua calls out in hunger and loneliness, “I didn’t feel like living in anything not shaped like me anymore.”
