In Atrophy,  poems evoke a powerful sense of nostalgia, celebrating the past even as they mourn it with the clarity of hindsight.

From prescription drugs to dog fights, dance parties to love letters, and even encounters with ghosts, the vivid imagery takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions.

These verses are a captivating blend of darkness and humor, offering an unfiltered glimpse into the complexities of the human experience.

With a cinematic touch, each poem becomes a manic meditation on love, hurt, and the intricacies of human relationships. Burgess leaves the reader craving for more of these beautifully crafted and emotionally charged reflections.
"Jackson Burgess' Atrophy is simply shattering-- in its apocalyptic intensity, its relentless drive, its urgent music, its desperate tenderness. These are songs of innocence wrecked in experience, rendered in language that blazes and swerves. Here is the world on jagged edge, a post-midnight landscape as beautiful as it is ruined, dark and full of wonder."

- Cecilia Woloch, author of Carpathia
