The breadth of Homogium speaks for itself. From “Homage to Comrades,” written for the third LGBT March on Washington, to “Archetypes of War,” penned in Europe in 1995 as a witness to the flood of refugees from the Bosnian conflict, to “Dec. 14th, 1980,” commemorating John Lennon’s Central Park memorial, this poetry collection broaches imagery with skilled language. From the depths of the Grand Canyon to the visceral cold of Toronto winters homage is paid to the anarchy of time, the passing of one’s parents, the struggles for identity and the pangs of requited and unrequited love.
