These poems tell a story about what it is to live in a foriegn country
for any length of time. While there are many new and exciting things, it
often is not easy, especially if one is alone. Some of the poems are
social commentary and philosophical in nature.The poem Eigelstein Symphony is about the drug rehab center that used to be located on Eigelstein and an attempt to tell it's story from the perspective of those sent there, who Joe saw almost everyday when he lived on Eigelstein.
