The Situation addresses a wide array of subjects and concerns, among them, the deaths of close friends; neglected lives; and the struggles of love. Spiritual issues are also raised in poems that deal with and confront a deity. Another dimension of the collection comes from poems that are seriously at play with contemporary, historical and literary figures such as Emma Lazarus and Charles Schwab. A line from the title poem probably best summarizes the tone of the book: "That's life, isn't it, death?"
