AS THEY CRUISE THROUGH 21ST CENTURY Brooklyn, Charles Theonia's romantic, hopeful characters have a lot to endure: ice cream trucks packed with undercover policemen, white cat hairs on immaculate all-black outfits, and wrenching romantic disappointments on permanent rotation.
Full of tragedy, absurdity and emojis, these delicious poems remind us that even when love keeps veering in every direction, we should never stop chasing it.
