Too Many Humans of New York, by Abigail Welhouse
In the cities and on the screens of the 21st century, the personal is the public, and the public is personal. The poems in Abigail Welhouse’s second chapbook, Too Many Humans of New York, extend and expand the horizons of longing, skepticism, irony, and anxiety that fueled her previous chapbook (Bad Baby). Long poetic lines twist and turn like queues for the city's best pizza in poems that find frustration, bemusement, and delight in the exhilarating and exhausting labyrinth that is New York City.
