My current project entitled “Space Craft.” They make up a response to Sloterdijk’s book What Happened in the 20th Century in that I take his idea of seeing Earth as a space station or spaceship and stretch the metaphor to imagine a possible future with a lens for time and space. The idea is one where space on the spaceship Earth is in need of crafting as is time. The poems imagine the problems and possible solutions with things as they are. The poems also break further from poetic styles from my past in that they are more stylistically confident in their conviction to name and in their embrace of a way forward not only for a person but for humans. As with “Epilogue: The Left Behind” and “Practitioner Joy,” “Space Craft” attempts to envision a world without corporate capitalism and without Homo Deus threats.
