Broken Glass and Gasoline
By: Sokratis J Ivanovich
About the Book:
Broken Glass and Gasoline is a collection of poetry which Ivanovich wrote to comment on both society at large as well as the state of interpersonal relationships in the modern era. He also brings attention to the concept of the futility of modern consumer culture and romanticizes the concept of “pulling a Thoreau” in several pieces. Ivanovich hopes that readers will have an eye-opening experience and take pause and reflect on the way they develop themselves and view those around them.
