Poetry

Severance: Poems from a Dystopian America
(Virgogray Press, 2020)

Severance: Poems from a Dystopian America examines the political and social disenfranchisement cultivated in the polarized climate existing today. This collection crystallizes this portion of neopatriotic poetry as a supplement to its counterpart, The Vanishing Poet; Casares shares his thoughts on the causes and realities Americans have experienced over a decade of political divide. Some of these poems penned as early as 2003 are oddly relevant in 2020.

The Vanishing Poet
(Virgogray Press, 2020)

The Vanishing Poet, poems by Michael Aaron Casares, collects poetry published just prior to the print-on-demand boom between 2005 and 2010 on the independent circuit via chapbooks, now defunct online literary resources, and either international or limited run publications. The Vanishing Poet finalizes this lost era of writing, a time before the great cyber and digital rush. It was a time of the silent revolution of the small and independent press. It was a part of a last ditch effort to produce the publications romanticized by the wannabe-beat throwaways of the last millennium; it was a time when one hit the road instead of daydream, to see people face-to-face and not merely their digital soul.
