Chutes and Ladders is a collection of poetry based primarily around our collective notion of childhood. The poems that follow are both a celebration and a critique of the American Dream, the picket fence, and all the things that lie beyond that. The text is written from the perspective of a variety of characters and voices. Like childhood, the meaning behind each poem is typically clear when experienced or first read, and more complex when remembered or read a second time.
