Ruins is a collection of prose poems that look at the motif of buildings and city-scapes as veritable sites for memory, loss, disaster, and rebirth. Written in fragments that mimic the form of these ruins, Monga juxtaposes our built environment with eschatological myth-making. These, however, are not ruins that are marked as signs of moral degradation and occur at the end of an epoch but rather surface as our consistent present. In this book, we encounter a city that exists alongside its own ruins that has to come to terms with its own decay.
