Two Poems by Chris Stroffolino

by: Chris Stroffolino

At the heart of these two-column poems is a sense of universal dislocation and a shared unknowability. They touch on love, sex, political struggle, branding, economics, art, friendship, all while recognizing that our knowledge of ourselves and the world doesn’t necessarily lead to insight, and, even more concerning, insight doesn’t necessarily lead to change.
