Editorial Reviews


He is always somewhere. This is a poetry grounded in circumstance, but his language soars over the landscape, trying to escape. That is my reading of these moving, strangely personal poems. My hearts are stacked like chairs, he says, the mundane metaphor making us do a double-take on that shocking plural. In a time when poetry is pale with irony, these poems startle with profound seriousness. --Robert Kelly

Courtly respect for and deep engagement with the sensory and mind worlds the world of otter ground and the moon trees -as for a lover, unfinishable in that engagement (no closure=no coming, no going), a contemplative attention to all things felt, thought and sensed inform this series of praise-songs for living in the here/now realm in all its complexity and difficulty. The attachment travels by air and memory across a field of language built of slant rhymes and natural rhythms that constantly acknowledges its primary generous axiom: Beauty needs a distance to survive... --Maria Damon
