Casual Trespass is a collection of poetry that addresses the dissonance and dualism experienced by young people in this modern technological era. The book explores the conflicts forced upon an implied character, the "I" of the poems. Through the character's perceptions and experiences, the pieces depict a world where boundaries become more intense and extreme. The cityscapes that define the urban, and the peaceful landscapes that define the rural, are transformed into sprawling mega-cities and primordial wilderness. This is the fundamental journey to reconcile struggles with self-loathing and pride, religious truth and disbelief, and technology against the natural world. The book combines the violent savagery of modern society, drug culture, and cyberspace, with the dangerous mystery and hope of magic and nature.
