About the Book

Opera Bufa is American poet Adam Fieled's first full-length print book, initially released by Mark Young's Otoliths in 2007. It is a cycle of sixty prose poems meant to constitute a comic opera in text, and has been taught at Loyola University in Chicago and elsewhere.

Excerpts

I was a cadaver in a copse until a cop arrested me. I was a convict in a jumpsuit until I jumped bail. I was a hitchhiker under galactic moon dust until I saw the sun. I was the sun as it rose and I shone on my dead self. I was a copse under the sun. I was a convict and a copse. I was all of this until I learned that you are what you see. I was what I saw until I saw that my eyes were shut. I opened my eyes to a kind of vacancy. I opened my arms to delinquency. I do not see anything now, and it rings.
