Signposts Vol 2: more strange snacks for people on the go. Poems in a box. Assorted aftertastes that come forward and linger on the tip of the tongue. Combining a number of Eastern and Western poetic traditions, the Signposts series offers a fresh account of change and pathos. Mini narratives born from ordinary moments unearth the tragic and absurd aspects of longing. In this volume, the fragile nature of human relationships points increasingly to the impermanence of life itself. The possibility of transcendence is not broached, merely implied as a question worth asking.
About the author

Todd Garlington spent his childhood in the Australian Capital Territory and his youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. Film school brought him to Los Angeles, but a love of language ultimately prevailed over an interest in images. He graduated from the University of Southern California with a Masters in Professional Writing. After a rigorous stint in film and television where he served more as a factotum than a wordsmith, he transitioned to the vocation of independent author. His written work explores temporality, decadence, and the paradoxes of personal and cultural identity.
