Summary

Abraham Burickson’s chapbook Charlie is an exploration of what it means to find oneself living without an instruction manual in a world filled with strangers. The poems follow Charlie and Sal, two very particular Everymen, as they navigate the emotional and intellectual straits of their lives, seeking meaning, pleasure, and some sense of self. The road is treacherous: pronouns jumble, rhythms overwhelm, and the intensity of sensual experience causes these poems to shimmer with longing and uncertainty. Charlie guides the reader on a journey that is as enticing as it is unsettling.

Trained in architecture, Abraham Burickson is a poet, essayist, and artist. He is the founder of the San Francisco–based performance group Odyssey Works and the Odyssey Lab Summer Institute. His poetry has appeared in many magazines and journals, and he has received awards and fellowships from the Michener Center for Writers, the Millay Colony for the Arts, and the Best New Poets 2008 Anthology. Currently an Artist-in-Residence at Cornell University, Burickson teaches writing at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
