Description - Astoria by Malena Morling

Astoria examines the transitory physical world of the body and reflects on the seamless quality of the present moment. Surrounded by the rush and noise of trains, highways, and grocery store checkout lines, the narrator of these poems creates an intimate space in which to ponder the ephemeral nature of everyday things and the deeper meanings that might underlie them all. ""It is amazing / we're not more amazed,"" one poem muses, ""The world / is here / and then it is gone."" The poems in ""Astoria"" unravel the hidden within the obvious, and speak to our innate questions of longing purpose, and existence.
