Adam Fitzgerald's poetry in George Washington: Poems (Liveright) comes across as playful while exploring the concept of Americana and what that means. He discusses wanting his poems to capture specific periods of his life by listing obsolete pop-culture objects from his past. The result is poem as time capsule, as opposed to what many think poetry is supposed to be – abstract and timeless.
