"Always Danger" offers a lyrical and highly imaginative exploration into the hazards that surround people's lives - whether it's violence, war, mental illness, car accidents, or the fury of Mother Nature. In his second collection of poems, David Hernandez embraces the element of surprise: a soldier takes refuge inside a hollowed-out horse, a man bullies a mountain, and a giant pink donut sponsors age-old questions about beliefs. Hernandez typically eschews the politics that often surround the inner circle of contemporary literature, but in this volume, he quietly sings a few bars with a political tone: one poem shadows the conflict in Iraq, another reflects our own nation's economic and cultural divide. "Always Danger" parallels Hernandez's joy of writing: unmapped, spontaneous, and imbued with nuanced revelation.
