On Washington Independent Review of Books’ September 2018 Best Books List.
Here are love poems for the 21st century, writing into meaning what before could only be felt.
The Arrangements explores love and desire as they relate to the boundaries of body, mind and language, and how these bonds and boundaries bleed into and maintain one another’s discreteness.
“Broad Night” from The Arrangements:
all around—fullmoon on each
with brutal stars
in it. Love
in your face
Here chandelierof dependent prisms,
what nimbus splits
into and joins it.
