In the Men’s Room


“In the Men’s Room” is the third volume of poems in the Has Doubts series, written by Alexander Velky.

Crowdfunding for this volume fell short in late 2018 and thus its future is uncertain. 

The theme of this book is the relationship between nature and destiny, with a specific focus on mankind’s influence on its habitats and its social structures, and on the related propensity for mankind to conflate itself with men, as illustrated in the frequent usage context of the word itself.
