Sarnat leaves it on the field, so to speak, in his newest collection, Disputes. History, politics, the voices of a lifetime gather around the investigative art he plies. In the imagery and dialogue, a swirling montage of life emerges where a poet "gussies for his tie-die shindig" and encourages us to jump whole-heartedly into this collection and the life Sarnat chronicles.
