From the publisher
The ultimate subject of Maya C. Popa's stunning debut collection is violence. American Faith begins with its manifestation in our country: a destructive administration, a history of cruelty and extermination, and a love of firearms. The violence naturally extends to the personal. What for some is routine can feel like an assault: a TSA agent wipes down a bra tucked in a traveler's suitcase, adding, "...prettiest terrorist I've seen all day." Tentatively, the title poem casts light on the unrevealed future, a solution that includes faith: "...the days, impatient, fresh beasts, appeal to me-/ You are here. You must believe in something."
