Failure to Merge by Micah Ruelle

Failure to Merge by Micah Ruelle


Micah Ruelle takes on America’s love affair with interstates as I-35, the freeway that divides the nation in half, takes on a persona and a pronoun in these epistolary poems. The road, which has long been a symbol of freedom, contends with its histories and which bodies can safely travel it, where it ends and begins, where “even eternity has its outsourcing.” Here in the center of America are plants that can’t resist care, bouquets of cotton, a road rage becomes embodied, state signs that remind you that it is through difficulty that you reach the stars. Failure to Merge reminds us that we can’t become one with something, even if it’s love.

—Traci Brimhall
