"With equal parts hilarity and anxiety, the poems in Protection celebrate urban life and lust. In Shapiro's world, every experience, large or small contributes to his ironic fatalism. Whether the narrator listens to his mother swear, talks to an ex-lover, imagines his house burn, or orders Chinese take-out, all actions reveal his inescapable destiny." -Kim Roberts, editor Beltway Poetry Quarterly.
