Black Coat City, a new release of poetry from Miguel Jacq, explores the nature of anxiety, uncertainty and identity.
Comprised of 34 poems and two parts, this is a uniquely introspective journey through the fleeting thoughts of the individual; thoughts which bleed into the collective soul of a city of 'black coats' all grappling with identity, their strengths and their weaknesses.
No greater than a sum of their parts, society's cities endlessly battle the same demons as individuals, and must come to terms with themselves through experience and a continuous desire to self-improve.
Black Coat City is the first full-length collection of published poetry by Miguel Jacq. He lives in Melbourne, Australia.
