Holding Out the Hand of a Dead Relative

eBook (PDF), 80 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $6.00
Featuring poems that range from playful postulations of oddball future generations to ruminative speculations on our place within geologic timescales, and from the hopes of clinically depressed folks to tender appreciations of fatherhood, this unconventional debut explores our relationships with the natural world, the not-so-natural world, and the question of faith. It offers no easy comforts but strives to provide a well-earned acceptance of circumstances as they really are, without the distorting projections of human judgment.

    Profoundly grateful, deeply eternal, permanently observant, this poet has horrified me, comforted me, increased my awareness, sharpened my memory, and persuaded my confidence as a human being. You can visualize the referents of these words as they hang together in sequences of primordial memories, recalling distant sensations of something that somewhere, at sometime in the past, someone you know told you in secret. At times I was reminded of the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Conrad Aiken. At other times I was reminded of the dream-like quality of films by directors like Michel Gondry or Spike Jonze. If you are considering buying this book I certainly recommend it.
