Abstract

Writing these poems over the last several years has been both challenge and solace. Many of them have been written under great constraints of time and energy, in flashes of insight (sometimes even at stop lights), and later revised. Taken together, they reflect preoccupation with the weight and heft of a thinking life in many different manifestations: internal, domestic, aesthetic, political. The writing of them has created for me quiet places for both close looking and expansive thinking, and into these places I hope my readers can walk, through the poems themselves.
