"Allan Popa’s Drone envisions the human at its most alive and challenged. These beautiful, troubling, and exquisitely thoughtful poems interrogate the nature of terror and awe, violence and grace, suffering and art. Their folkways emerge as parables, songs, and “hearsay,” often revealing the territory between what can and can’t be said, and done, and believed. At the heart of this work lies a tenderness for all we have lost and a fierce commitment to all we stand to gain personally and collectively through acts of imagination. This is a powerful and much-anticipated book."
