The Future of Love

By John Gallaher
Winner of the 2013 Dead Lake Chapbook Contest


"The poems in John Gallaher's The Future of Love are deceptively quiet and simple in the way a pet chimpanzee is deceptively docile. One minute the chimp is running around in his little cowboy suit, looking every bit like a human child at play; the next, he's viciously attacking the next door neighbor over a cupcake. Still, I love chimpanzees; they're frighteningly like us, and I love these poems; they're frighteningly like our dreams, only better, because we get to carry them around in this beautiful book." - Christopher Kennedy
