SAM: A Mundane Love Affair Between Two Men
J.N. Habiger


In an apartment with bars and a view of the backside of a fast food joint, Sam was written as an exploration of the inner tension between the common and the unusual.

Within the hyperbolic depiction of a modern relationship between "a defect of the city" and a "sparrow who suffered simplicity of heart," the two men followed in this book unfold within a classic, yet tragic, love story.

In a series of 125 poems, Sam is revealed through a lens of an invisible narrator, and is written in such a way that the reader has access to the inner states of the two men throughout its entirety.
