After the Hatching Oven

After the Hatching Oven explores chickens: their evolution as a domesticated species; their place in history, pop culture and industrial agriculture; their exploitation and their liberation. These poems delight in the mastery of language and intensity by which Alexander has thought his way into the very cells of his subjects through riffs on poems, movies, news stores, public health advisories, ad campaigns, message boards, as well as self-translations.
