Field Guide to the Human Condition, Poems by Adrian S. Potter
In Field Guide to the Human Condition, Adrian S. Potter has written a book of poems about how one rebuilds oneself after grief, heartbreak, and challenges. It focuses on the setbacks and struggles that mold a person into a different version of themselves than the one they once knew. It’s about grappling with histories, both personal and collective. Potter uses hallmarks from modern life—pop music, discrimination, shifting identities, and toxic relationships—to construct a hall of mirrors, in which each viewpoint reflects a different possibility.
Adrian S. Potter has won several writing awards, including the 2022 Lumiere Review Prose Contest, the 2014 Lebanon Poets’ Society Free Verse Poetry Contest and the 2006 Cervena Barva Press Fiction Chapbook Prize. His debut poetry collection Everything Wrong Feels Right, was published by Portage Press in 2019. His work has appeared in more than 250 literary journals, magazines, and websites, including North American Review, Kansas City Voices, Obsidian, Blue Earth Review, and The Broken Plate. His short fiction chapbook, Survival Notes, is available through Cervena Barva Press. His short prose chapbook The Alter Ego Handbook is available for free download at Yavanika Press.
