About this title


In this provocative collection, Kim Jensen gives voice to the struggle of
those who seek love in a world saturated with brutality and aggression. The
concise lyrics in Bread Alone condemn the violence in Iraq, Palestine, and
Lebanon, while exploring the intimate consequences of these and other
injustices. Darkly humorous, grotesque, sorrowful, outraged, and sometimes
poignantly hopeful, Jensen’s poems possess a strange beauty and
remind us of the key purposes of poetry―to warn and to revive our sense
of conscience and connection.
