This short no-b.s. book of poetry has a simple, unadorned power. A meditation on mereness, spareness, space, and places in between. When to speak? When to be silent? When to lay our questions down to notice the motions of an answer to them? The birds don't ask why the trees walk beneath them...They do not think twice or at all about their singing...What do we name ourselves, and why do we keep so many words in our coats, and wear sleeves made of story? Are these our stories anyway? Go beyond the door that this modest volume opens, and enjoy its imperfect song.
