HEAT WAVES is a collection of confessional poetry exploring themes of masculinity, maturation, loss, consumerism, the growing disparity between the speaker and his family, and American identity. The collection is divided into three sections. The poems in the first section deal with childhood, friendship, and coming of age in Southwest Florida. The second section deals with family and considers the contrast between the beliefs, educational backgrounds, and career of the speaker’s father and the speaker himself. The final section explores 21st century America and its issues including environmental damage, consumerism, and alienation.
