Summary

This acclaimed poet's seventh collection entreats us to love everything before we lose everything.

Excerpts

From “Edge of Town”:

I would have
taken the whole wild western coast, wave-strewn
layers of sediment pressed down and heaved up,

left as rubble, then smoothed by the sea’s
agitated prancing in its rocky stall.
It was that rough shore I wanted. And more.
Its long view back to something older than age.
Those two huge upright stones with a stone slab
capping them left to mark the dead

as if death itself were an old implacable god,
an ancient relentless one to stand before
dumbstruck.
