In April 12 we have a parting, and a bit of mysticism, perhaps reincarnation: "... releasing/ my pained silence./ I screamed across the plains of long ago/ and across the table now I whisper/ I have always loved you."
All of this from the first four of forty-one poems. Anything beyond this has to be pure gravy, and the quality does not let up. James has produced something that will shift your mind, and for sure deliver the experience of each poem to each reader.
