From the Shore is a collection of handwritten poems and drawings driven by the sense of estrangement from nature, work, and one another under capitalism. Rooted in a blurring of self with the natural world, the compositions find enduring hope and uncertainty in the future as they imagine ancient human families, empty coliseums, and other ways to use a golf course.
